There’s nothing to do in Uyuni.
Uyuni is a strange town. Set in Southern Bolivia surrounded by some of the most extreme landscapes in the world. It’s remote, dry and dusty, and gives you the feeling you are on the edge of civilisation.
Uyuni is also the mandatory stopover for visitors to the Salar and deep south of Bolivia, as well as travelers passing through Chile and even Argentina.
Despite being full of tourists, there’s nothing much for visitors to do. Everyone passing through is just passing through, for the attractions lay beyond the town’s limits.
There are a bunch of pizza/pasta places around the square, hostels, and well… not much else.
We were waiting for the train to take us back to Oruro after our tour of the Salar. The train only goes twice a week, so we spent three nights total in Uyuni.
Trading goods in exchange for Bolivianos
We tried, we really did, but it is really is a stopover town.
So, we ate too much pizza, wandered around, and took photos of the locals living their everyday lives.
