  • It is definitely one of the places I liked most of the whole circuit of the salar and lagoons and the tourists should definitely go. Here we went from cultivating quinoa and having excessive livestock in the past to devote to Eco tourism, without a doubt an excellent example. The volcano offers many attractions, excellent views of the Salar, numerous and well-organized circuits to travel. The flora and fauna of the place unlike others very abundant and very well maintained. Coqueza a very nice and original little town, still not built those buildings of bricks and corrugated that afearían. You pay entry and they charge you for everything, but that money is well invested in taking care of this beautiful place.
