The journey here will undoubtedly be some of the most breath-taking scenery in Peru as this underrated destination lies in the heart of lush Andean foothills. Salineras de Maras is not, by any means, a "destination attraction", but it's a picturesque pit-stop if you are traveling to or from Moray, which is reasonably close by car (via some very wild roads). Photographers, especially, will appreciate the dramatic landscape and juxtaposition of practically any color against the stark white backdrop of the salt flats.
For the best experience, hire a guide for the day, and be sure to stop here on you way to Moray (a must-see). While an hour would be plenty of time at the flats, allot some extra time for photo ops, picnics, or Zen time en route; if you're anything like me, you'll want to pull over 1000 times to admire the land you're driving through, truly a visual experience like no other.
