The best option is to get there by car or on a tour. The Salinas Grandes are located on National Route 52, 65 km from Purmamarca and 130 km away from San Salvador de Jujuy. The road is paved, and visitors have to go through the Cuesta de Lipán slope while they indulge themselves with beautiful landscapes and a maximum altitude of 4,170 metres.
It is advisable to fill the tank in San Salvador de Jujuy or in Tilcara, as the first petrol station is located in Susques, 135 km from Purmamarca.
Purmamarca is the closest town to the salt flats, offering several accommodation options. San Salvador de Jujuy and the main town in Quebrada de Humahuaca also offer accommodation. The salt flats provide a glamping site, where the local community is present.
