6/20/2019: Coming from the airport, we found the sign for the lake fairly easily. Getting to the lake was another issue. We asked around town, and someone was finally able to show us a way in to the lake. We walked around for a couple of hours before returning to the airport for our flight to Arica.

7/3/2019: One last stop at the Laguna Batuco on the way to the airport.

Next Visit (Arica: 6/21/2019)
