Hello, I'm going to travel solo to Sth America in June next year. Currently part of my plan is to fly from Rosario to Calama, visit Atacama desert and do about 2days tours, then go to Salar de Uyuni and do 2/3days tours, then take a bus to La Paz.
Q1: What's the travel arrangement between Salar de Uyuni and San Pedro de Atacama? Cost, operator, anything to take care of because of crossing border?
Q2: Are there tour operators in one of these tourist sites where they drop ppl to the other tourist spot at the end of the tour? I think I've seen one for a 3 day Salt Flats Tour + Transfer to Chile package somewhere. Do they work out more expensive? Suggestion/thoughts?
Q3: Based on the other 2 questions and experiences from travelers who have been there, which direction is better or convenient, cost efficient (if)...
Rosario -> Atacama -> Salar de Uyuni -> La Paz? or
La Paz -> Salar de Uyuni -> Atacama -> Rosario?
Apologies if the questions sound a bit stupid, thanks in advance for your advice.
