Any time of Salar de Uyuni salt flat has its beauty. Depend on what you want to see.

Raining season starts from December to next year February, it is the classic view of the salt flat.So call the World's largest Mirror.

When it dried up in July or August, you can see the salt flat in many pentagon shapes. sometime in between March to May, you can see both types of the salt flat.

It is possible to meet the salt flat without joining the tour, but why?

The price is reasonable, good service, the journey is flexible, you can stop your driver when you meet a nice scenery.

Our driver also gives the tips for how to get the amazing photo.

Join the tour on the spot? Yes, our tourmate arrived Uyuni at the same day when our journey started. 

They came from Oruro by train and arrived at early morning.I cannot 100% sure you can register last minutes if during the high season.

PS:Our tour agent was blue line。just opposite the train station. There are many tour agencies on the same street. Blue line located at the corner, near the square. you also can find some around the square. compare the price before decided which one you want to join. Usually, all included, accommodation, food, and your guide, just need to bring extra water if you need more. Don't forget snack due sometimes lunch/dinner are late. Beware English tour is 400BOB expensive than Spanish. We join Spanish one although we don't understand. But it is alright since we join the tour for scenery, not information. Some more if your tourmate knows both languages. Ps:National Park entrance fees not included, 150Bob. Salt make hotel toilet cost 5 Bob after lunch will heading to Fish island, 30Bob entrance fees included toilet entrance.
