See a natural wonder at Laguna Colorada, where waters that fill the lake are tinged red, caused by sediments as well as the coloration of algae. Visitors like to take photos of the natural contrast between the white borax islands and the red waters in which they sit. While in the area, watch several varieties of flamingoes perched among the scene of the self-contrasting lake, large salt flats around it, and the mountains in the distance.
