Stopped off here on an open top bus tour of the island. I exaggerate - on SAL they're pick-up trucks! Great experience floating in extremely salty water. A must visit place - this was how SAL got it's name. A bit pricy for what it...More

Lovely attraction on it own or as part of an island tour. The road and the car park could be better. With every tourist paying Eur5 to get in I would think the owners would be able to spare some money to improve the infrastructure....More

Before I start I must warn you, if you do not know the way to the entrance, the few people wandering this arid and nearly uninhabited ghost town will actively try to steer you towards unofficial guides that are very aggressive and unkind if you...More

The salt crater is a funny place - you can float easily in the water as it contains 28% salt and at the same time the bottom of the crater is quite hot, because it is volcanic. It says you will be 10 years younger......More
