The Santa Rosa lagoon is one of the most beautiful excursion destinations in the Atacama region. In calm weather, the 6700 m high mountains of the Tres Cruces Massif are reflected in the water of the lake or some flamingos are looking for food.


The Santa Rosa Lake
is located 148 km on the road east of Copiapó, in the salt flats depression of the Atacama Region (Chile). The lake is connected to the Salar de Maricunga (Maricunga salt flat) and is located in the continuation to the north. The lagoon has an extension of 2.0 km by 1.2 km.
The Santa Rosa lagoon is known for its large population of flamingos. In addition, with a bit of luck, you can see guanacos and vicuñas in this sector.

The Santa Rosa lagoon is located 3762 meters above sea level. To the south side of the Lagoon, on a adjacent hill there is a small viewpoint with interesting information about the hills of the area. Access to this place is only possible with 4X4 vehicles.
To the west shore there is also a small refuge of CONAF and above a hill you can visit a viewpoint with information about the hills of the sector.
