you can float In a clear water salar lagoon with view to beautiful volcanos . I recommend to pay the entrance fees to get unlimited time, and more important, access to the showers after the swim.

with so many amazing Lagunas, this little place seems an invention for tourism. I found much nicer the road through the Salar de Atacama to reach Cejar, rather than the Lagunas themselves.

we went to Laguna Cejar which is roughly a 20 minute drive from the centre of San Pedro, We chose Cejar because of its incredible view of Licancabur Volcano which is part of the Andes🌋. There’s 3 lagoons on offer but you can only swim...More

We went to Laguna Cejar in San Pedro de Atacama last October 2018. Nice place. The landscape is wonderful with the Licancabur Volcano right over there. It is very nice to float without any effort because of high density salty water

one of the best spots to take astonishing pictures, Cejar is very close to city center and worth a lot!

We visited the laguna as it was the first stop in the tour we hired. There are three lagoons around the area. You can only swim in one of them, and as it had a high volume of salt, you float! The water is cold,...More

the smallest Laguna in the area and the most expensive: 15.000 clp per person (more than 20 euro)! There many more interesting attractions in the area at a reasonable price or for free. Not worth it at all.

I have been working in the area since 2005 and visited Laguna Cejar several times year ago. It's a beatiful system of a few lakes, worth a visit of max an hour. Yesterday, I returned there with my family after a long time, to watch...More

There is much beauty in the vicinity of San Pedro and most of it requires an entry fee which makes sense. This Laguna however asks for a ludicrously high entree fee. Hence, one should simply avoid this one.

15 USD per person for one of the smallest Laguna in Atacama, probably just because one can take a bath, is a rip off. Other entrances cost in average 2USD per person. Sceneries are not the greatest. Of course there is no birds. Perhaps good...More

This is great place to go during summer. I went here in winter and it was quite windy. Nonetheless it is wonderful to experience to float on a salt lake, without sinking! Take your swimming gear along, they have well-equiped changing facilities with fresh-water showers....More

Price went down again (15.000 per adult) and they limit the access to 400 person per day in order to protect the lagoon. Sun protection is not authorized neither. You have showers there, cabins to change and toilets. This is... More
