Salinas de Maras

Carreta a Maras, calle marquez 231 oficina115, Cusco

An easy and popular day trip from Cusco, these salt mines in the Andes about 25 miles north of town in the Sacred Valley make for a picturesque and educational outing. Hiring a guide will give you a much better idea of what the process of cultivating salt from the mountains involves and is well worth it. And of course, you can buy salt here, too, to bring home as a souvenir.

From sunrise to sunset, daily.

Around $2 per person
