Playa Blanca (the only hotel allowed inside the salt flats) surrounded by salt sculptures, flags and the statue of Dakar. Moving towards the center of the salt flats, you will fully enjoy the immensity of the landscapes and have a photo session of fun perspective images with the tour guide who has a lot of experience in this field of photography. 3 Necropolis & Museum Kawsay Wasy Walk on the Inca Wasy Island (Cactus Island). It awaits you after that, where you see the giant cacti and coral rock formations. The hike itself is about a 1 hour loop and will take you to the top where you can see a great 360* view. Once you finish this short hike, west will be your next direction towards the small town of Villa Candelaria to spend the first night, but just before leaving the salt flat, you will see a stunning sunset on its shore. Upon arrival at the accommodation, you will enjoy hot coffee and chocolate with some cookies and snacks. At tea time you can enjoy a delicious dinner.
