Laguna Colorado is just one of about 10 lagoons you will see on the 3- or 4-day tours out of Uyuni or San Pedro de Atacama. This is the biggest one and contains areas of dark red water, said to be coloured by a special form of plankton. In June, there were also pools of green water and also dark blue. Many of these pools were highlighted by the white borax deposits found all around the lake. There are also hot springs and geysers of steam in some areas. It would be most unusual not to see many flamingos at this time of year. Because this is a busy lagoon with numerous photo opportunities, it is worthwhile persuading your driver/guide to spend some time here as it is possible to approach the lagoon from many directions to see it's many features and patterns of light.
There are also basic facilities near the hostel. When I say basic, - I mean basic!
