Description

Good clean gas, very welcoming. The plus here is that they have a water tap they allow you to use. Non potable water ( no salt, locals call it aqua dulce) for washing dishes and bathing in on the salar. When we returned from salar we also used this water for cleaning chairs, shoes, etc that were salty.

No possibility for negotiation. 8.6 bolivianos per liter is the listed international/foreign price. Everyone was friendly and courteous. But, if you can wait to fill up, you can find better prices elsewhere.

They don’t seem to negotiate anymore - they said 8.6 is their firm price because they’re “privado”. They directed us to another gas station, but no luck there either.
