We went by local bus (with the farmers and the women and all their baskets of shopping etc.) rather than taxi. It is really cheap and there is one every 15-30 minutes. This is the most complete site in the area, with many small temples, storage houses and dwelling houses all still with roofs. The site is immaculately maintained, you can hire a guide or just do it yourself. There is an exhibition of good-quality artefacts (bowls, jugs, representations of animal gods etc) within the site. Be sure to visit both the upper and lower sites (a common ticket, but separate entrances), you stroll about 500 metres up the road (10 minutes max). The higher site is even more impressive than the lower, and also has display boards explaining the culture etc. The man at the upper site is both knowledgeable and friendly and is very glad when visitors come, as you often have the site to yourself. When you've finished you can either get a local minibus (cheap, every 15-30 mins) back into Huaraz, or you can walk the trail down (about 4 kms).
