It's not a terrible place but not amazing how the pictures looks and you can hardly walk around thru the salt waters

Browner in winter and whiter in summer, the salt mines are very cool. We mountain biked from the town and the ride was good for a beginner mountaineer biker who is reasonably athletic and adventurous. My husband is a serious BBQer and he was very excited about the meat seasoning/rub being sold by one of the merchant stalls nearest to... More

Definitely worth a trip to. We jumped in a cab from Cusco and the guy agreed to take us out there for 80soles between us (3). The trip is an hour away so unless you join a tour or hire a car it is quite tricky to get to and a long walk if you try to use public transport.... More

We hired Frand R. Mayhuiri Ramos, a professional tour guide who provided private transportation to this interesting site. This is a must go place when in Peru. We enjoyed the private tour because you can get in and out without the hassle of being on a cattle bus with tourist. I really enjoyed seeing Salinas de Maras and bought some... More

Just some salt mines...if you do not have adequate time, it is not a not-to-miss site of Peru! There are small shops selling salt and souvenirs where the guides suggest you to shop and a small store where you can taste the local chicha morada (beer-like drink made from black corn).

We rented quads to get there and the scenery in incredibly beautiful! It's interesting to learn a bit about the history of the place. Do yourself a favor and buy some of the salted chocolates while your there!

Splendid views, one of the highlights of the sacred valley! We visited Salinas from Urubamba with a taxi for 50 soles. The ride was picturesque. We spend almost an hour there!

It was very interesting visit of the salt mines which take the salt from the water that comes from the ground. It is recommended if this visit is part of other in the area, but not if you just go only to see this site, it is too far and little to see

What an amazing location this is. As soon as you start descending the road and have first view over it it is breathtaking. There are hundreds of salt evaporation ponds each one at its own stage that conveys an incredible colour palette of whites. You can walk alongside the ponds and it can be quite fun, we were with kids... More
