Interesting town though we did not get to spend much time there. It was raining when we arrived on the train so we went right to the hotel. Everyone we came in contact with was friendly and helpful. The town was moderately clean but we were disturbed by all the plastic water bottle waste brought in for the tourists. They... More

A tiny town with only Machu Picchu to give it fame but a really nice little place with many hostels, restaurants, shops and hotels. The views of the mountains from anywhere is breath taking and the have hot springs hence the name.

Not a particularly attractive town and life seems to centre around the train tracks. Some restaurants are on the platforms and dogs, children and sellers all sit on the rails and only move when a train is coming. A good place to stay though, as very convenient for Machu Picchu.

The pictures and video are stimulating, but being there is special. The scale, the stone work of buildings and terraces were produced by a special culture! I wonder if Hiram Bingham ever fully realized how dam lucky he was to find this Gem!!! If you only visit for 1 or 2 days, you need a guide to better understand the... More

There's not a whole lot here, but it's a nice spot to stay for the night after seeing Macchu Picchu - a few bars and the river - plus the hot springs if that's what you are into!

This was an amazing place to visit with our friends. We loved walking everywhere and exploring with our guide Diego. He knew so much about everything, flora, history, you name it. It was a good place and arrangement for getting the bus to Machu Picchu and horseback riding and rafting too.

What an amazing place to be! I loved it soo much. It is outstanding. There are no words to express it. Spend at least 2 days so you have time to know and explore a bit more. You gotta go! Please give me a helpfull vote! Thank you.

Great site, however, after the 4-day hike it was almost a let-down. The sites and mountains along the way were just so spectacular that it was a little hard to take in the crowds.

some time tour companies rush things, remember buses to the site leave every 10 min. Mid day up there can get hot You need 3/4 hours to enjoy the site. You could have a guide for 2 hours and the rest 2 hours on your own would be ideal

Excellent visit especially if you stay at the Sanctuary and can visit between 6.30 and 8 am. Few tourists and great sunrise. climbed Huyana Picchu which is a great experience but you can climb Cerro Macchu Pcchu which is an easier path rather than large steps, does not need a ticket in advance and is manageable by all abilities.
