Description

The Laguna Cejar is a small lagoon in the middle of the Atacama Desert. His turquoise waters have a salinity concentration higher than the of the death sea, allowing the visitor to gently float and relax reading news papers or the magazines of her preference.

The main dissolved salts in the waters of the laguna Cejar are Sodium and Lithium. Their effect during the bath in the waters is relaxing and exfoliating for the skin. Its recommended not to immerse into the lagoon without swimming glasses. The Shores of the Lagoon are populated with salt lumps and crystals.

The Eyes of the Salar are two small lagoons situated nearby to the laguna Cejar. Their waters are crystal clear and almost free of salts. Most visitors usually take here a bath to free the skin of the salts of the laguna Cejar. The Eyes of the Desert were formed trough subterranean water bodies eroding the ground.

The laguna Tebinquinche is the last leg of our journey for this day. On porpoise we arrive here short before sunset to enjoy a majestic spectacle. The light of the sun reflecting on the waters of the laguna Tebinquinche, surrounded by mountains, volcanos and the blue sky above us.
