Maras salt for home – a useful and delicious souvenir
Only for almost ten years, the tourists that Maras discovered for themselves. And how is this: with the visitors, a new and welcome source of income was presented to the people of Maras: souvenir shops! Today, you can finely pack Rosa Maras salt just above the salt mine in small cabins to take home as salty snacks, such as corn chips or fried banana slices. In addition, the owners of the salinas take some plants to take photos with them. And, of course, the entrance fee of ten Soles that you must pay if you want to walk a bit through the salt fields. Honestly, although it is worthwhile to convert not only the “routes of the route”, but also to deepen and maybe even talk to the workers in the salinas themselves.
But all this is not about any tour operator in Lima at best, but it flows directly to the bottom of the cooperative, so use your purchases to keep this tradition alive and impressive salt mine.
