Travel the salt flats to arrive at Laguna Cejar, a sink hole filled with water. This hole in the desert now serves as a unique swimming hole due to its high salt content, allowing for swimmers to easily float on the surface. Be sure to bring your own fresh water to rinse off with afterward, or take advantage of the showers that can be found on the site. Once you get out, take time to view the Andes mountains in the distance or remain until after dark for a clear view of the nighttime sky. You can plan San Pedro de Atacama trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

I've actually haven't really seen the place, as we've got refused at the gate due to rain that felt the night before. Turns out that it's better to check with the tourist information in town before coming over.
An interesting place where to see a salt lake. However I found it less interesting that salt lake in Argentina. In any case it is worth to see and spend some time there.
