ITINERARY

Our Maras Moray Tour Itinerary

At the coordinated time, we will pass through your hotel in Cusco to pick you up and we will go for 01 hour and a half to our first stop, the impressive salt mines of Maras, this place is in charge of the local inhabitants of Maras who have used it since pre-Inca times to provide salt to the people living around. It is impressive to see how the salt water emanates from a natural source located at 3650 meters above sea level. The villagers built small reservoirs to retain the salt water and process it for human consumption. After this wonderful experience we will get to our van and drive to Maras Town that still maintains the original stone carved frames in the main access of each house that comes from the colonial era, all the houses have carved the shields of the families to which the property belonged. After that, we will travel for another 15 minutes to get to our next attraction, the Inca agricultural laboratory of Moray, unique in its style where Incas worked on adapting products and farming seeds to different ecological altitudes.

Finally, on the way back we will make an interesting stop to visit the Temple of Chinchero with fresh paintings in its interior and to see the symbiosis of 2 religions that were merged in the evangelization process, also in this place specially on Sundays the mass is celebrated in Quechua, this temple is built over the ancient Inca buildings that we will also visit and then we will make a stop in a Textile center. Our Maras Moray tour ends by 13 pm in cusco.

TRAVEL INFO

Useful information

Altitude sickness

As soon as the people reserve the trip to Peru, specifically to Cusco, they begin to wonder about altitude sickness. High altitudes contains less oxygen than at sea level and forces your body to work harder to get the oxygen it needs. For few days at high altitude your body adjusts to the least amount of oxygen in the air.

The first symptoms of altitude sickness may be; headache, fatigue, followed by loss of appetite, nausea or vomit, dizziness, trouble sleeping, difficulty breathing during exercise. If any of these effects worsen, contact our office and we will help you get to a doctor.

Weather

The weather in Cusco it’s unpredictable. In general, the dry season in Cusco is from April through October, but this does not prevent the rain from falling in June or the sun coming out in December, just be prepared for any weather. No matter which month you take the hike or excursion, or which tour you are on, make sure you have adequate clothing that includes a waterproof jacket, pants, poncho and waterproof gloves.

Also prepare for four seasons in a day. Many of the excursions through the Andes involve many microclimates and you will have to be prepared for all seasons. The layers are always key because they are easy to adjust to different temperatures. And the nights will always be cold, so get ready with a warm jacket.

Arrive in Cusco

The airport in Cusco is currently quite small and only for domestic flights, so all international travelers by plane must disembark in Lima and go through Customs. Even if your flight to Cusco is the same day by the same airline, you must pick up your bags in Lima and then register them again.

The best way to get to Cusco is by air and there are several airline options. LATAM tends to be the most expensive, but it has more flight options. But you also have PERUVIAN, AVIANCA, STAR PERU,  to choose according to your preference. Expect flight delays or cancellations, due to the high altitude of Cusco, tends to be difficult to land so that on rainy days you can paralyze air traffic. Bus tours are always available and although the journey may be long, especially from Lima, Peru buses are well maintained and are comfortable. This option is recommended if you come from a city closer to Cusco like Puno or Arequipa. Buses from Lima will take around 20 hours to arrive to Cusco.

Exchange rate

If you come to visit Peru, try to exchange your local currency for dollars. If you arrive at the Jorge Chávez airport in Lima without dollars, there is a foreign currency exchange office inside the Lima Airport Partners, there you can change: (US dollars, CAD dollars, euros, yen, pounds sterling, pesos from almost all countries in Latin America), change the necessary amount of dollars that allows you to have enough soles to settle, then try to change more dollars per soles in physical exchange houses that are safer and offer you a better exchange rate. However, if you are coming directly to Cusco, there are many money exchange houses at Sol. Avenue where you can buy the local currency more safely.

For farther info about money exchange check out our blog HERE

Travel insurance

To protect your travel investment, we recommend buying travel insurance. Getting travel insurance before leaving home is highly recommended and very easy. There are many insurance companies depending on your country of origin and at different prices according to your time of stay, take some time to review them and hire the one that best suits you. This is an excellent way to protect yourself while visiting Peru.

Community

At Peru Private Tours (PPT) we are proud of the work we do for our community. This is the main objective for our company. We are working directly with the villages to help them meet the needs of their families. We support the children of the villages by giving them school supplies, books and clothes.

We buy all our food from farmers and local markets and serve the freshest ingredients. We offer constant training for all our team: guides, porters, chefs and drivers. We are a family born in the Andes and we want to work with them and for them. That is why once a year we bring our porters and their families to Machu Picchu. We want our team to know the world wonder, since they work tirelessly at the doors of this place without ever visiting it and showing them this place is our greatest honor.
