Moray, Salineras and Chinchero together make a good day out. Get the Cusco-Urubamba bus to drop you at the turn to Maras town. There will be a lot of taxis waiting. A reasonable fare in a colectivo (shared) taxi to Moray and back is 10...More

Interesting to see coupled with a remarkable history of why the terraces were built. I was grateful that we had a guide who was able to provide the history of the terraces.

This site is thought to have served as a laboratory for growing crops in Inca times. It is a unique and interesting site. Still only 4 stars, because the tour I joined spent too little time here. We walked only along the upper part of...More

They don't take any credit cards nor foreign currency. It's 70 sol/person. Kinda expensive compared to the living cost but it's worth it. Highly recommend to find a guide and listen to the explanation. It's breathtaking.
