What are Las Coloradas?

What you see here are huge salt evaporation ponds for sea salt extraction. Some of them show peculiar colors due to microorganisms, like the pink lagoon.⁠ Yes, it’s really pink. Keep in mind in order for you to see the color pink at its peak, you need to be there at noon. There has to be clear skies and the sun has to be directly on top of the lakes for you to see the stunning pink colors.

Finding this place is not hard. All you have to do is type up Las Coloradas in google and it will take you there. Upon arriving at this place they immediately told me that I had to take a tour to take a look and take a photo of this beautiful place.

The Gear

The gear we recommend is a good camera and the holy trinity.  A wide-angle lens.  14-24mm or something similar.  A 24-70mm or something similar and, of course, a 70-200mm or something similar.

If you do not have these particular lenses, do not worry; something similar will be just fine. It would be best if you also had a tripod.

1.The Beach

In the photo below you can see the road that takes you to the town. As you can see, on the left-hand side you have the ocean with free access to anyone. From this area, you can take beautiful images of the beach and if you fly your drone from here you can get cool images of Las Coloradas.

2. The main entrance

The photo you see below was shot inline to get into the place. The price to get in is around 200 pesos (around $10 us dollars). I did not have to go in as the entrance has this cool small wall that you can pose your model on and get some really cool shots. If you want to get closer to the water you have to pay the entry fee and be accompanied by a tour guide.

3. Surrounding areas

If you go to Las Coloradas you will soon realize there is nothing much there. The best thing to do is to drive around town and look for beautiful spots to photograph. You can also look for other ways on the other side of the pink lakes to get into this place and get your epic shots.

Remember, photography is all about getting creative and bending the rules… Happy shooting and be safe out there.
