Urubamba Things to Do
In Urubamba make sure to check out the agrotourism project in nearby Chichubamba. The project is a cooperation between the residents of Chichubamba and the NGO ProPeru to help improve the economic state of the community. The project allows visitors to take part in small interactive demonstrations that demonstrate hw resident of the Andes live today, and how they lived many hundred years ago. The members giving the demonstrations were extremely knowlegable, friendly and incredably eager to show me their work. Plus as a bonus at some stations you get free samples. It is a nice change to learn about the actual people of Peru, rather than just those that live 500 years ago whose culture we know little about.Related to:
- Historical Travel
If you are in Cuzco, perhaps you are traveling around by bus or by taxi in the region. If you are passing the Urubamba Vallay by the road (it is a beautiful journey to go there), don´t miss to visit one of the restaurants there. Good food, nice service and a calm atmosphere.
Favorite Dish: Well, take some typical food. Mostly they have several dishes (buffé). I promise you will not be disappointed, at least I didn´t!
Just look at the picture, can it be any better ...
