Day 1: Puno - La Paz Pick up from TERMINAL BUS PUNO, the bus will leave at 6:00 am to La Paz. You must be at the bus terminal at 5:30 am. On the way we will pass through immigration where you will present your documents and then we will continue with the trip. Around 2:00 pm we will arrive in the Bolivian capital. Here while waiting for the bus to Uyuni, you will have the opportunity to visit its cable car, the most important in South America, which crosses the city from the air to the urban center (optional activity, at the passenger's expense).

On the way, we will stop at the Uyuni train cemetery, a real open-air museum where you can see the first locomotives that circulated in Bolivia. We will get off the 4x4 in the town of Colchani, very close to the salt flat. Here we will see how salt extraction works and visit the Playa Blanca hotel, built entirely of salt blocks, a marvel of architecture! We will stop for a regional lunch consisting of a starter, main course and infusion, and then we will go deep into the desert until we reach Incahuasi Island (the view of this island varies according to the season), located in the heart of the salt flat.
