  • Local with Asian and Mediterranean...

    El Huacatay is located a few blocks from the main square, in a narrow dusty side street where absolutely nothing happens... But don’t get fooled, it is a great place! There are tables outside in a small cosy garden, but we had a late lunch at the restaurant and sat inside because of the hot afternoon sun... The dining room only has a few tables and...

Urubamba Shopping

  • Pottery with history

    Pablo Seminario , a well-known ceramic artist, makes modern pottery in pre-Inca styles. The designs have been carefully researched. He has lectured at the Smithsonian, and some of his pieces are in the Chicago Natural History Museum. Items are for sale at his home studio. Almost anything made from ceramics. He makes everything from dinnerware to...

  • Ceramics in Sacred Valley

    Seminario Ceramics is a great place to stock up on new ceramics and artwork from Cusco. The store in Urubamba has a much wider selection than the store in Cusco. You can even select what you like and have them ship it up to the Cusco store so it doesn't break on your trips around the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu.

After a quick lesson from Carlos, we all paddled. It's a very scenic trip through the canyon. The canyon walls are 1300 ft. above the river. We passed a lot of Inca terraces along the way, and...

  • Walk to Moray and Salinas

    From Urubamba we decided to do a walk to Moray and Salinas (see things to do tips).First we took a taxi to the road to Maras (you can also ask to drive all the way to Maras (if you're a sissy haha) Then walk to Maras, from the plaza the armas there are indicators to Moray. You can take two ways. Or you walk on the road(longest and a bit boring) or...
