Prop up your Instagram at the Bolivian Salt Flats
Did you even go on holiday if you don’t get some top quality pictures for the ‘gram?
Making memories is what holidays are all about, but being able to laugh about those memories forever is just as important.
If that’s your motto you might want to think about visiting Bolivia’s Salt Flats, which blow all other holiday Instagram posts out of the water.
Salar de Uvuni is the biggest salt flat in the world, spanning 4,633 square miles, and because it’s completely flat, there’s so much potential for props – as you can see from these amazing photos.
Not sure about the method of transport across the salt flats our tour gave us but I’ll go with it. #justdoit

It’s estimated that there’s 11 billion tons of salt within Salar de Uyuni, and when water covers the flats, they become the largest natural mirror in the world.
The photo opportunities are endless.

Adventurers are choosing Bolivia more and more as part of their South American travels, and with these beautiful (and hilarious) landscapes it’s easy to see why.
So … come on over and enjoy Bolivia! just make sure you plan your travel to the salt flats when there is no water on it, which may be like 50 centimeters across the whole plain and no where to sit … so discuss this with your travel agency … and enjoy!
