It starts by leaving from your hotel, early in the morning. You will leave the city of Cusco and make a first stop in the town of Chinchero.
There you will learn about the artisanal weaving that is still made in Cusco, weaving made with natural fibers from the so-called South American camelids (Alpaca), naturally dyed and hand-woven.
You will know how the Incas experimented with cultivation, it is in the place of Moray, an archaeological center made by the Incas, which have a circular shape, it is where the Incas did experiments with plants.
It is located in an incredible place, with wonderful views, surrounded by mountains of the great Andes mountain range.
Another of the places that you will explore are the old salt mines, the famous Salineras, a natural formation of salt, with more than 200 pools of this mineral.

They were also the settlers of this land, who exploited these salt mines (Salineras). Currently the community members of this town continue to exploit them, there you can see how they extract the salt from these mines.

The city of Cusco is at 3350 meters above sea level, if you come from a city at sea level, surely you will feel the blow of the height, the lack of oxygen, the agitated breathing, the headache, these will be the symptoms.
But do not worry, having some coca leaf mates (which are given in the hotels), resting the first day of arrival in Cusco, it will be enough to make you feel very well and you can do the tour to Maras Moray and Salineras.
When you arrive at the Cusco airport (Alejandro Velazco Astete International Airport), from where you take your bags, there are several taxi drivers offering taxi service, I recommend that you ask the taxi drivers: How much is the cost to the address of your hotel? Normally the cost is about S /. 15.00 to S /. 20.00 Soles for the taxi, remember to always pay the price of the service beforehand.
Note: There are some hotels that include the transfer from the airport to the hotel, and they actually wait for you with your name on a sign, and take you to a car (taxi), please ask the person if the taxi is already paid through the hotel and talk to the driver, who will pay for the transfer?
I give you this warning because it happens many times that hotels offer the transfer service and in the end the car driver charges you for the transfer service and it may cause you inconvenience.
In the City of Cusco, being a tourist place, there are many accommodation options from luxury hotels, tourist hotels, hostels, hostels and airbnb.
