San Pedro de Quemes is a village in Potosí Department, Bolivia .


San Pedro de Quemes is one of the points of refuelling & resupply around Salar de Uyuni.

You can get Internet access in the municipal centre that is on the east side of the main square. You can find limited groceries - no fresh fruit or vegetables to speak of, but plenty of cookies, pasta, tuna, sauces, long life juices and eggs.

There is a bakery that prepares bread every day but you need to order your bread in advance. This lies close to the southern edge of town, ask around or check out OpenStreetMap for its exact location.
