Salar de Uyuni Packing List (Salt Flats Packing List)

The following is a list of recommended items to take with you on a Salar de Uyuni tour:

  • Take sunscreen and sun glasses with you. Also, don't forget lip moisturizer. The salt flats have a dazzling glare when the weather is sunny.
  • Bring warm clothes including a hat, gloves and thick socks. Bring layers, as the Salt Flats can get very warm during the day and extremely cold at night.
  • Waterproof/windproof jacket – while it won't rain much outside of the summer months of December through February, your jacket will serve the purpose of helping to keep you warm.
  • Flashlight or headlamp for the basic accommodations at night.
  • Swimwear and a towel. Aside from washing, there is the opportunity on most tours to dip into the hot springs close to the geyser.
  • Walking boots for hiking some of the trails when you get out of your 4x4.
  • Sleeping bag – on most of the standard tours you'll want a warm sleeping bag, since the accommodation is basic and it can get very cold at night.
  • It is always advisable to carry identification in Bolivia. A copy of your passport should be carried with you.
