What to do for one day from Urubamba

We are taking a Gate 1 Tour of Peru and have included activities in Cuzco and MP. We will have a full free day to explore other parts of the sacred valley from Urubamba. Our tour group is offering an optional tour to Moras/Moray but if we did that we would like do it on our own.

Our Hotel is the San Augustin Urubamba Hotel which is outside of town.

Would like to hear suggestions about what to see and how to arrange it for just the two of us. We are open to public transportation and are not afraid to walk some too.

From Urubamaba you will have to use some form of transportation as nothing is really within walking distance.

Maras and Moray are seperate locations located between Urubamaba and Cusco and you can easily visit both by hiring a taxi to take you if you choose.

From Urubamaba its only a short taxi, bus, or combi ride to the town of Ollantaytambo which in itself is quite the attraction plus the Ollantaytambo fortress is amazing.

Pisac is a bit further but its famous for its market as well as ruins in the hills high above the town...if your short on time definately use taxis and get driven right up to the ruins above town. If you dont plan to walk down dont forget to arrange for the taxi to wait or come back to pick you up.

<You will need to take a taxi to Maras and Moray, its about 50 to 70 soles depending on how well you bargain (round trip).

To Ollantaytambo is by combi van, to Pisac is by bus. They both leave from the same place. You can also take a taxi if you want. If you are on an organized tour I am assuming you are the taxi type but the busses and combis are perfectly safe, if a bit crowded and slow.

Is it possible to do Maras and Moray in the morning and then head to Pisac in the afternoon? Would it make sense to hire a taxi for the day to something like this?

Hi Gilladj,

I also have a day in Urubamba in Dec, also looking for ways to get to Moray and Salineras, and I will be staying in the same hotel as yours on Dec 11 and maybe 12.

When will you be there? If possible, maybe we can share a taxi !
