Did you know that if one of your unguided motorcycle tours takes you through the Uyuni Salt Flats you can stay at a hotel made entirely from salt? The best choice: Luna Salada Hotel, (Salted Moon Hotel) right on the edge of this famous stretch of land.
Made entirely from salt, the hotel was constructed in 2007 by a team of Bolivians who hand-carved salt blocks directly from the Salar de Uyuni itself. The foundation of the hotel, the floors, walls, reception desk, furniture, your bed…. everything is made from salt. Sound strange? It sure is, but it makes for a truly unique travel experience.
There are a couple of other run-down, low-quality hotels made from salt out in the middle of the Salar where tourists frequently report miserable experiences made miserable by the staff that operates these hotels. Enjoy the 4-star Luna Salada Hotel experience, and make sure RIDE Adventures is helps you choose the right motorcycle rental opportunity for Bolivia! (Most rentals will start from Northern Chile.)
(Directions: From the center of the town of Uyuni, head northwest on 602 to Colchani. A national park checkpoint will let you pass, where you’ll immediately turn left and follow this road about 1 kilometer straight through Colchani. Turn right at the sign for the Luna Salad Hotel, and follow this road that seemingly leads nowhere for about 3 kilometers. This is a private road for the hotel, and will take you right there!)
