Hotel Tayka del Desierto

Hotel Tayka del Desierto, Southern Altiplano, Bolivia

Our rating: Basic

Ideally located for visits to the lagoons of the region, the Hotel del Desierto is the only real option in the area and just 40 minutes from Laguna Colorada. It is a small lodge literally in the middle of nowhere with capacity for 47 guests in basic but comfortable rooms. There are solar panels on the roof that generate electricity and hot water in the evenings. The property was built by four local families and is very much in tune with its environment, with friendly service and local food.
