This is a beautiful place of Cusco and I visited on a tour by bike because I love the adventure. It's unique, but also you can visit Moray that is located close to Maras.

How many different shades of white and grey can fit in one picture? Take a extra battery for your camera and start shooting.

This was an interesting site ..worth the visit. You can walk along the salt pools and see the different stages of the salt being dried out. We did this without a tourist guide ... you may get more details with a guide.

This place is really incredible. I liked it so much, expecially walking among the ponds and watching people gather the salt. I even tasted the naturally hot and salty water flowing from the underground. Nice experience and good products to buy.

The sale winning area in Maras has been exploited bij the Inca's and is still in use. Small 'salt lakes' that are linked to each other and spread over the valley.

The salineras is a nice place to know, there are little shops to buy some souveniers and salt. Is nice to go with a guide, because they explain how the place works, the types of salt produced there and a lot of nice stuff more.

I had no idea what to expect here but was pleasantly surprised. These salt pans go back to the days when the Incans ruled. It is very interesting to see how the salt is harvested.

The salt mines are amazing to visit. It's a learning experience and you get to walk on the salt but be careful not to fall in. There are many salt items for sale at the location and it's really amazing to see what they make...More

Cool place. Do not go when it's raining or has recently rained. Get a tour guide to explain this location and the types of salt mined.

My son and I did a ATV(4wheeler adventure) to the Morays and had a awesome time. The company took care of picking us up from Cuzco and taking us back. This is the way to go, plus you take in the scenery at your own pace and... More
