- The pink lake is pink all year long, however we never know how “pink” it will look like in advance, it depends on a combination of salt production and weather conditions.
- Las Coloradas is a private property owned by the salt factory. It is not allowed to have a walk within the property. We will bring you to the authorized area where tourists are allowed to access with a guide and take pictures.
- The tour is taking place in the wild, we can not guarantee if you will see all birds and animals, neither how many or from a close distance or not.
