After hotel pickup in San Pedro de Atacama, head with your guide to Cejar Lagoon (Laguna Cejar), about 12 miles (20 km) south of town in the Atacama Salt Flat (Salar de Atacama).
When you arrive, you have about an hour to take pictures, walk around the shore of the lake and go swimming. Cejar Lagoon has such a high concentration of salt that you’ll float on the surface, just like on the Dead Sea. It’s a chilly but unforgettable swim!
Back on shore, rinse all the salt off your body with water provided by your guide, and then hop back in your tour vehicle and head to the Ojos del Salar (Eyes of the Salt Flat), a pair of mirrored lagoons that make for a cool photo op. Spend about 25 minutes there to take pictures and walk around, and then continue to Tebenquiche Lagoon (Laguna Tebenquiche), your last stop.
Known for its beautiful sunsets, which you’ll enjoy over snacks and drinks, Tebenquiche Lagoon is home to flamingos and other native birds. As you relax on the shore of the lagoon, munch on chips and nuts and sip a refreshing pisco sour — a cocktail made with pisco, a grape brandy produced in Peru and Chile. Watch the setting sun create a beautiful glow over the lagoon, and then head back to San Pedro de Atacama for hotel drop-off.
