Many say the town is too commercialized, but it's really very nice

I loved this small town. Many Peruvians come to work here from all over the country. Residents and local employees here are very friendly and helpful. It's very beautiful.

A must visit for everyone. Went with our own private tour guide who was able to steer us clear of large tour groups. Also guide was very knowledgeable about history of the area. Would have liked more time there as didn't see it all.

You really can't visit Machu Picchu without at least stopping briefly in Aguas Calientes. It is a touristy town with a lot of booths selling touristy type of merchandise, but it is also charming and worth it to spend at least a little bit of time there.

A lovely town as a base for Machu Picchu trek/visit - reached by a stunning train journey through some amazing scenery. Fantastic market, cafés and quaint restaurants serving traditional Peruvian food. Stayed in a really quirky hostel, although can't remember the name of it! Great atmosphere and very friendly place!

This is THE place to stay when you visit Machu Picchu. The hotel by the citadelle is too expensive and "touristic" for our taste. This town is safe, offers great lodgment opportunities and places to eat at different prices.

One of the best decisions of my life was to come here.it has taken 58 years and although the enjoyment was as great the body could have done with a couple of decades less.

The place, its location just will bring you to your knees. Even if you are not a history nut you will appreciate the incredible landscape and architecture. For better view consider hiking Machu Picchu or Hauyana Mountain.
