Bolivia’s wet season is the BEST season to see the Uyuni Salt Flats when they become ‘another world’. It’s not the same as the dry season. The rainy season begins in December and lasts until late March or early April. Sometimes all that is required is a few inches of water for the spectacle to blow your mind. Other times, the water is too deep to cross the salt flats but you can go in a kilometer or so and still get a jaw-dropping experience that is found nowhere else on this earth. Yes, there are other salt flats that flood, but the Uyuni Salt Flats are the biggest in the world by a long shot…and that makes all the difference in what you see and experience. You need to come prepared for cool temps and wet conditions, but also be ready for blue skies and white puffy clouds and very warm conditions. It’s best to dress in layers anytime of the year and bring some rubber boots during the rainy season as the salty water will destroy leather and any synthetic hiking boots.
