Seemingly surreal, the bright green water of Laguna Verde reflects against the snowcapped volcano that lies beyond it. The lake's unique composition of minerals cause it to have a startlingly bright green color that varies from turquoise to dark emerald. The area is best visited when there's a slight breeze in the air, just enough to stir the arsenic in the water and evoke the lovely green shade. Explore the surrounding area on foot or by car to take in all the beauty of the natural scenery. Arrange to visit Laguna Verde and other attractions in Villazon using our Villazon trip planner.

  • Beautiful green lake near Uyuni! The color are stunning, the contrast of the pink flamingoes in the green waters and the blue sky is absolutely gorgeous. The landscape looked just like a perfect painting, it was so hard to believe what my eyes were looking at! Definitely must visit when in Uyuni!!!
  • Wonderful planet Earth! P.s. stay on the Bolivian side! :-P
