Laguna Cejar
Cejar Lagoon is located within the Salar de Atacama, 20 kilometers from San Pedro de Atacama. It is recognized by the strong Calipso color of water and is surrounded by salts of various forms. Its waters, being saline, allow the bodies to float and remain without sinking, because the salt load is greater than the weight of the person.
Duration: 2 hours 
Admission Ticket Not Included
Stop At:  
Ojos del Salar
The Atacameños called them Ojos del Salar because they are two blue lagoons of fresh water in the middle of the Salar de Atacama. Unlike the Cejar Lagoon and the Tebinquiche Lagoon, the Ojos del Salar lagoons are much deeper

Stop At:  
Tebinquinche Lake
A divine lagoon formed thanks to the thaws and rains that fall during the year in the driest desert in the world. This wonder has a low depth (only a few centimeters), which allows it to resemble a huge mirror, which reflects the beauty of foxes, flamingos and other birds in the area. With this amazing landscapes, we will enjoy a cocktail contemplating the reflection of the Andes in its waters, along with the whiteness of the salt. The sunset, with ocher colors and strong tones, will offer a true spectacle before our eyes.

This was a fine tour, and the people contractor Touristour were great. But there was little value added beyond the transit to get to these places, and that's what you're paying for with one exception, which I'll note on that tour's review. If you have time and resources to rent a car instead, you would be well advised to do so.

Minhas expectativas eram maiores. O local é bonito, mas devido o sal, o local é muito árido. Nossa guia Pâmella, ajudou a me interessar mais por essa excursão, com suas explicações.
