Description

Wash off the salt!!! 2 places next door to each other, one labeled as a car wash but wasn't open, the other had an unlabeled, open blue gate and welcomed us in. $80B for our huge van, $50B for normal sized trucks. Drove the vehicle up on raised stand, over a work out. They pressure washed the entire exterior and oiled the undercarriage to prevent rust. They offer interior wash as well, though we didn't get that added service.

Update Nov '15: Cost 60Bol for a normal SUV

Went through red gates. Seemed to do an fine job but they obviously give a lot more attention and care to the tour company vehicles who go there (we waited for 30 minutes while they washed a land cruiser, but they only took 10-15 minutes on our Pathfinder). We paid 70 BOL for an outside clean (without oil) and interior vacuum. Not the most polite guys.

Nice place. 50 for washing and then fumigate (protection against salt). Same price for washing the next morning. The price depends on the size of your vehicle but is quite fair. We have a Chevrolet Express (7*2,5 m)

They are open on Sunday. They were really glad to discover iOverlander!

Really efficient car wash, nice people. We had a Kombi and Toyota 4Runner and they charged us 50B per car.

When you want to add the oil on the bottom of your truck before you go to the salt flats you have to go to the one with the red gate.
We also went here afterwards and they cleaned our car really good.
Paid 50bol for the oil and 70 for cleaning afterwards

Really good and intense car wash. Friendly place.

Opposite the gas station, the gate is more brown than blue now ;-)

Professional job done by Lavado Autos. It’s behind the two big rusty brown gates. Cost 70bs. Drive up a ramp and they pressure clean and add oil solution to prevent rust. Check out photo - other car washes close by but this one seems to be a favourite of the landcruiser tour operators! They do a great job.

Still 60 bols for a SUV. Quick and good job. Very professional, which is not so common here in South America. I left a tip. Open on Sundays.

went here today with 2 vehicles and they charged us 50B each. They use a high pressure hose to clean the underneath and soap and a brush to clean the rest of the vehilce, the girls dried it at the end. It's located behind the double gates across from the fuel station (next to the tire place)

Great service. Little boy did a good job rinsing the car, then oiling and finishing with soap. Car looks as new. Kind people. Paid 60 Bol for our Nissan Pathfinder

Report Check-In

50bob for a 4runner undercarriage wash and to have the front seats wiped out. Took them ages, since we also had a thick layer of mud under there (hot tip, mud gives a nice protective layer to keep the salt off - so a perfect excuse to dive through some mud puddles!). We tipped an extra 20bob because it was heaps more work than they expected.

Report Check-In

Very frendly service, took about 30 minutes. For the size of our car (VW bus) it was 40 bops for the entire exterior wash and undercarriage oil spray.

Best washing service in town, we were here twice already. Guys do a better work than at the Southern end of town and usualy there is nk queue. Paid 50bs for a Land Cruiser.

We were charged 50 Bols for a Toyota 4Runner today.. The two guys are very thorough going over the car fully

I think we went to the place next door - labeled as Lavado Autos (or sometimes labeled as Rally Dakar Lavado Autos) with a rust colored gate. The place was busy with local tour company trucks. They close from 1-2 for lunch, so it was a good move to get here a bit before 2pm to beat the rush. They have concrete ramps and do the full pressure wash, wearing head to toe rain gear. They charged us 60 Bol for our 2-door Jeep Wrangler, and they sprayed the anti-rust mixture on the undercarriage as well. For an additional 7 Bol they vacuumed the interior (front seats and mats) and dusted the dash with Amoral.
