Picturesque and worth to spend the night. But be careful with your money!

No, I dont mean you'll get mugged, the town is pretty safe. I'm talking about the fact that nowhere in town they accept "damaged" notes. If you want to exchange dollars, they have... read more

We recommend hiking Huayna Picchu! You get a beautiful view of the entirety of MP. Try to go early and get the 7 am tickets. It started to get warm in the late morning. Also, the tour guides at the gate are mediocre.

Was on one of the first buses and into the site before it was overrun, but unfortunately the fog/mist covered most of the view. This actually made it a great way to see Machu Picchu as the mist rolls away to reveal this amazing place. The lamas are tame and make for a good photo opportunity. Find a quiet spot... More

Very clever Inca's !! Perfect weather in March - no cloud or mist cover, no rain, very lucky! Had a great guide. Very organised train trip to and from MP. :)

No, I dont mean you'll get mugged, the town is pretty safe. I'm talking about the fact that nowhere in town they accept "damaged" notes. If you want to exchange dollars, they have to be pristine for them to take them. No old-looking or even 2mm-torn notes will be accepted. One more thing, most restaurants charge the 15% tip in...

this small pueblo has become too touristic nowadays; just souvenirs or artcraft shops, tour agencies and restaurants everywhere

Go visit Machu Picchu! It's amazing but I really felt having a guide was the best way to go unless you have a really good guide book. There are freelance guides at the top near the entrance you can hire before you enter. Stunning views (on a clear day), plenty of archaeological ruins to examine, varied degrees of hiking trails...

There is enough said about this place I suggest you go at least for two days to have time to enjoy and feel the energy

The Pueblo also called Aguascalientes is a small town which misses alot of character. It is fairly new (1911) and has no valuable old historic sites. It has been for years a town where maintenance and construction people resided who worked on the railroad and the Machu Pichu monument and where trekkers come to rest or reload. The town today...

Like the title says, Machu Picchu Pueblo is a great little town. There are many restaurants, hotels, and shops as well as nice areas to walk and explore. The downsides are that everything is overpriced and that there is little variety in food choices. However, considering that very few people stay here for more than 2 nights, there is little... More

Not sure if they mean Aguas Calientes but you can also call it Machu Pichu Pueblo. Stay here at least one night and go back to Machu Pichu early in the morning without the crowds.
