Cross this off the bucket list now. Machu Picchu is simply amazing, weather was good, though it could change at a moments notice-don't forget to put on sun screen. We spent 5 hours there exploring, WOW. Best Inca ruin so far. Buy you tickets online-be sure you know the exact date you want to go, only 2,500 people a day.

It is everything that you have read, heard, or seen. There are many sections and everything is fascinating. We spent two days there. The first was with a guide, the second was by our selves so we could spend as much time as we wanted. We walked up to the sun gate and admired the trail coming up and going... More

This place is far from a tourist trap! I don't think it's necessary to stay longer than a week but there's plenty to do. bar, restaurants, hotels...sure, it's all there. If you walk away from the town, there are trails to venture into everywhere. Waterfalls, camping, climbing stairs up the mountain, thermal pools. It's all pretty increible. Just make sure... More

This is a tourist trap. If you are visiting Machu Pichu you will probably need to stay here; however, it is best to limit this to one night only, if possible. The town consist only of bars, restaurants, hotels and tourist shops; think ski resort without the snow.

Even though there were many people on site they did not detract from this wonderful location. Watching the mist make its way slowly through the high mountains was amazing. Loved this place!

Machu Picchu did not disappoint us and we barely had a minute to rest after our 3 flights from the United States to get Machu Picchu. We all agreed if you could get to the park in the early morning either via the Inka Trail or staying at one of the few hotels right near the park it would be... More

The whole village exist only as the base for Machu Picchu visits.If you have possibility to visit Machu Picchu without staying in MP Pueblo, go for it. Every house is hostel, tour office or restaurants. My son, who was sure that nobody can make a bad pizza, has changed his mind after visiting MP Pueblo :( . And you will... More

In this litlle town you will find a litlle bit of everything, but more than nothing a lot of good restaurants and souvenir shops. I fell very secure walking the area, also a lot of the small hotels are in this area. from live musicians shows on the street to a small church.
