Hotel de Sal
The name is meant to be taken literally. This hotel is, in fact, made from salt. Stay here to take in the wonders of the immense salt flats, and sleep in one of the strangest hotels in the world. The amenities are perfectly acceptable and the salt beds are actually pretty comfortable.
Bolivia boasts the largest salt lake in the world – Salar de Uyuni – and you can easily reach it by bus or short flight from La Paz. There are lagoons dotted with pink flamingos, weird rocks and geysers and a choice of touring options – mostly via 4×4 vehicles.
