Don't go around! Go straight through the most used part! I got stuck in what I can only describe as primordial oooze trying to go around. The water crossings look deeper than they are. I cruised through them once I got unstuck.

December to March/April is rainy season in that part of the world, so its definetively not the right time of year to go to the Salar de Uyuni.

You can decide if that is good or bad for you

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
