Spectacular location with a beautiful setting. One has to wonder how the Incas were able to accomplish this

The local poverty is overwhelming and is such a disconnect from the relative wealth of most visitors. The Peruvian people were universally friendly and helpful.

This is the town located at the bottom of the well known Machu Picchu. Here is where you take the buses to go up the mountain. The town itself it's beautiful surrounded by high and beautiful mountains. No words to describe this place. It is just amazing.

We recommend spending the night in Aguas Calientes to be able to spend as much time in Machu Picchu as you can. We were only able to spend about 4 hours at the top and we could easily have spent twice as much time. (Be sure to get your tickets ahead of time on the web site. You can't buy... More

Too many people come this far to see Machu Picchu ruins for the day, and miss out on spending time in this quaint town. First of all, I would highly recommend seeing Machu Picchu two days, just in case one day has weather issues. This gives you the opportunity to spend the night, as well as sampling the culture, foods,... More

Lives up to all the hype we've seen over the years. The entire area of the ruins is very crowded, but that's to be expected for a site known world wide, so don't let that put you off. It's worth the crowds, climbing, and changeable weather to see this World Heritage site.

It's totally worth spending at lease a night there and going the next day to Machu Picchu ruins. There is a lot of restaurants to go at night or even the hostel you might stay in has something to do. If you want to go to the ruins I I should go early so you can actually enjoy every bit... More

I've read some reviews that opined it's better to just get into town, see Machu Picchu and get out fast, but I found this town cool and worth checking out in its own right. The hot springs are fun, there are various restaurants and accommodations to suit any budget, and the market near the train station is fun, although certainly... More

Machu Picchu is in my opinion one of the wonders of the world, its fascinating, inspiring, truly magical. Being of a certain age we took the bus from the town around 0600, all very organised and professional. The route via the side of the mountain is interesting, but when you get to the top this is soon forgotten. We walked... More
