The largest town in the Sacred Valley of the Incas, Urubamba represents a transport hub, often frequented by tourists wanting to get out and see the ruins and natural sights of the valley.
Start off your visit on the 7th (Thu): explore by horseback at Hacienda del Chalan, then appreciate the views at Patacancha Valley, and then explore the ancient world of Pumamarca Ruins. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: look for gifts at Ceramicas Seminario and then see the interesting displays at Museo Inkariy.

For other places to visit, photos, traveler tips, and more tourist information, refer to the Urubamba road trip planning website .

San Jose, Costa Rica to Urubamba is an approximately 23.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from San Jose to Urubamba. When traveling from San Jose in June, plan for slightly colder days and colder nights in Urubamba: temperatures range from 23°C by day to 1°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 8th (Fri) to allow time for the train ride to Machu Picchu.
