It was exciting, but there was so much time that I would have liked to see the processing of the salt. To get an insight into the salt production. Staying over 2 hours in Punmarca is too much! You can get the souvenirs offered there everywhere else. You have to inform people in advance that you are going to almost 4200 m. And that it takes 3 hours to get to the Salinas Grandes.

Great experience which i can highly recommend! Fernando was a great guide who made the around 3 hour drive very entertaining. He has a great knowledge about the region and the environment which he shares with great passion. Despite speaking fluent spanish and englisch, Fernando is also able to share his knowledge into a fluent german. So if you are german speaking with a limited english, dont worry, you will be able to follow Fernandos explanations without any problems. Again many thanks for the fantastic day and keep on going! Greetings from Germany
