To get around this area you can rent a motorcycle or get around by taxi because everything is quite close.
We hired a driver for the six days that we stayed in Ubud and we were visiting the most cultural part of the island because we found it much more comfortable. Every afternoon we agreed with him a price for the places we wanted to visit and he would come to pick us up at 8 am every day at our hotel to do the excursion.
We recommend our driver 100% because he was great with us: He was always punctual, he explained in great detail all the places we were seeing on the road and the ones we visited and he told us about his culture and traditions.
He was also very patient with us and did not mind finishing the visits two and even three hours later than we had agreed if we entertained ourselves by taking photos or adding some last minute place to the excursion.
If you want to contact our driver, leave us a comment on the article and I will send you his phone number and name to the email.
Another option to visit this area of Ubud and the center of Bali is to hire a tour.
We have done some research and this tour looks very good and the guide speaks Spanish:
