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

I got a great kick out of this town. Full of many shops and loads of walking up and down hills and steps. Good cheap eats and buses to Machu Picchu and trains. Loads of beautiful flowers and the river with amazing rock formations.

This place is really magnificent - one should visit at least once in a lifetime. The flora, the rocks, the temples, the history - everything was just perfect..

Aguascalientes Calientes is at the feet of Mach Picchu. The town itself is not attractive, however it is a very handy location to spend the night and start an early day in Machu Picchu
