This section of the Sacred Valley continues to attract hoteliers and developers, who all seem intent on adding new country luxury resort hotels -- a sure sign of the region's growing importance and affluence, at least in terms of foreign travelers. A simpler, in-town alternative to the more upscale hotels reviewed here is the pleasant and good-value Posada Las Tres Marías, Jr. Zavala 307, Urubamba (tel. 084/201-006 or 984-650-225; www.posadatresmarias.com), a modern house in the center of town with gardens and seven large rooms (doubles $50).
