How to get there

The FrontierLab ranch is in Urubamba. It is reached by passing the bus terminal (traveling toward Ollantaytambo), turning left at the traffic light and crossing the railroad track. You have to enter towards Cotohuincho and follow alongside the railroad. Before long the paved road becomes dirt. Follow the sign for the Taypikala hotel. You will see a golden gate: this is our FrontierLab ranch. We are 5 minutes from the Urubamba terminal and 40 meters before the entrance to the Taypikala hotel.
