Go slow, be in relatively good shape, and be prepared to hike up uneven stairs. Not only are the steps uneven on the step part, which is expected knowing they are stones, but they... read more

Go slow, be in relatively good shape, and be prepared to hike up uneven stairs. Not only are the steps uneven on the step part, which is expected knowing they are stones, but they are also unevenly spaced. Some are just inches high, others are a foot or more high. The area is kept as pristine as possible. This means... More

People be careful with this: This town is really beautiful but the people are rude really rude! Bring your most beautiful and perfect cash because they dont accept imperfect dollars! Sometimes all the town lose their electricity so bring your own lamp. Be careful with the restaurants because they charge your for service even when the service was awful and... More

We were a party of four and ready to spend the night in this place and enjoy the restaurant and the hotel we have booked that was highly recommended on trip advisor: Rupa Wasi Eco Lodge. We regreted spending the night in this terrible place. The only good thing we found worth going to was the French Bakery Boulangeri de... More

We decided to stay one night in the town so as to access Machu Picchu. We took the train and arrive to a dark town which had had no power for three days because of heavy rains. They had generators so they were used to this. It reminded me a bit of the Whistler Village but more of a shanty... More

This place is the most amazing I have ever seen yet. This trip up is so worth it. Either any step or any dollar depending on how you get up. We booked additionally the Huayna Picchu mountain. This view is so amazing!!!

Over the years this has become a melting pot for people passing through to the obvious elephant in the room that is Machu Picchu itself. Other than that there is really not a lot to do in the area unless you are prepared and know what you are doing. Food wise, everything is expensive.... BUT if you find the local... More

We spent the night between 2 day visits to Machu Picchu which is just a 25 minute bus ride away. The town is cute, has tons of restaurants and a nice market at the train ststion. Because of it's location, prices are higher than Cusco.

Spent 3 days at Machu Picchu - did it the lazy way (train to aguas calientes and then bus up each day). It's a pricey thing to do whether you do the trail or by bus but fulfilling no matter what - I've huge respect for those that do the trail to the ruins as just walking up to the... More

This town is small and fit for your sleepover when visiting Machu Picchu. It's quaint and there's not much to do otherwise.

Machu Picchu Pueblo is also known as Aguas Calientes and is the access point for the superb archeological site of Machu Picchu. The town is pretty rough and ready, although there are some attempts to beautify it. The town is very touristy and there is a rather seedy market selling souvenirs next to the railway station. The main streets are... More
