The colorful salt ponds of Maras

Cuzco, Peru


default title

These salt pans have been used to extract salt from the local subterranean stream since pre-Incan times. We visited the salt ponds in Maras as a day tour from Cuzco.
Cost: 25 soles ($9) for transport to both Maras and Moray – entrance fees not included.
Entrance fee to Maras: 5 soles
Entrance fee to Moray: 10 soles (or included in your ‘boleto turistico’). It was just ‘meh’.

    1. For a non ruin enthusiast like us – this beats any ruins in Cuzco or Sacred Valley as our favorite sight (with the exception of Macchu Pichu, of course).
