Los Flamencos Eco-Lodge, Salt Flats

Named after the flamingos which flock to nearby Laguna Hedionda, Los Flamencos is a rustic hotel surrounded by some of South America’s wildest scenery.

A simple hotel, made from local materials and decorated to reflect the indigenous people of the area, Los Flamencos Eco-Lodge is a comfortable base for exploring the natural wonders of Bolivia's salt flats.

Natural spring waters feed the property and solar panels heat the rooms. Guests can enjoy healthy and simple meals from the lodge's restaurant. In the evening there are wonderful views of the night sky from the restaurant's skylight.

During the day guests can marvel at the thousands of James's Flamingos, inhabiting the lagoon in front of the lodge.

Los Flamencos is ideally positioned for exploring the picturesque high-altitude lagoons of southern Bolivia, reflecting the beautiful Andes mountains and volcanoes in the distance. At over 4,000m above sea-level, it really is somewhere that will take your breath away!

  • We have travelled with TUTC six times, the most recent was to New Zealand last year. The trip was very well organised as usual, with excellent accommodation and a wide variety of experiences. We had booked to go to Australia with them this year but due to Covid this was cancelled, Ultimate handled the situation very professionally and promptly refunded the whole of our deposit without any quibble.
