This place is a must and is an easy drive down from San Pedro. It costs 2500 peso per person to get in and you will probably only spend an hour but it’s worth the trip for photography and the surrounding landscape and the flamingoes.

My husband and I visited the place in February, and I don't know if that is the reason for not having many flamingos there. I would say we saw less than 15. The park is nice but not huge. A good 30 minutes at the...More

Stunning and otherworldly landscape of the salt flats with lots of flamingos. You can get fairly close to them in some spots. Definitely worth a visit.

These are salt flats with lying water in the arid Atacama desert. The pink flamingos stand on one leg while grubbing for food in the salty water. We visited in the afternoon and witnessed a most amazingly beautiful sunset.

Easy to see a lot of beautiful flamingoes here; three different species. Be advised of a couple things: 1) This is a habitat, not a zoo, so the flamingoes aren't up close. They're always at least a couple hundred feet away. 2) This is completely...More

Worth the hype to go at sunset - very beautiful and serene place to be with all the flamingos. There are nice walking paths to take you around the main and side lagunas.
