More than any other place we visited, Maras captured the spirit of Andean Peru. No tourism, no special sites to see. Just a little town with regular people. We stopped for a banos break and wandered around for a few minutes on our way to the Las Sallinas salt mine. Water salinized from natural minerals is evaporated from man-made terraces to yield pink Andean salt.
