Note:  many operators sub-contract and provide only a driver and no guide.  Adios DOES NOT do this.  We provide separate driver and guide and we do not sub-contract. 

It is imperative that reliable eye-protection be worn at all times during the day on the salar.  Guide will offer additional information to protect you from the elements including avoiding prolonged contact with the salt surface.  Salt is caustic to the skin and going barefoot is not recommended.
