Machu Picchu is truly spectacular. It doesn't matter how you get there - train, bus, bike, hike. Just go! The journey to Machu Picchu is as exhilarating as arriving at the entrance.

Excellent stopping point for refreshment or lodging before or after your day or days at MachuPicchu. Market with usual trinkets, but good restaurants and cafes offered great views and food/drink. Lodging ranges from hostels to grand hotels. We stayed at one that was super expensive, but worth every penny after two days climbing MachuPicchu. Spa, hot tubs, sauna, impressive breakfast,...

Great spot to stay, stock up and revive yourself before heading up to Machu Picchu. After a 5 day hike, perfect place to stop. It has everything you need, plenty of shops, for cheaper prices for water and stables just go off the main strip a little and the price drops alot. Plenty of hotels/hostels, restaurants, bars and shops etc.... More

This place would not exist without the visitors to Machu Picchu. However it provides exactly what's required: a range of hotels, tourist shops, restaurants and bars to linger and watch the world go by (and in this place the world really does go by).

We stayed here for 2 half days around our trip up to Machu Picchu. The town is really just for tourists, so there are many restaurants and shops, but not much else. It is in a picturesque location, where 2 rivers converge, and with the train moving through the town. We walked to the hot springs to relax, and went... More

Ok, this small town isn't guarding but almost everyone who reaches Machu Picchu goes through here (unless you do one the long treks). This town is not well developed and there isn't much to do. There are small hotels/motels and numerous restaurants and shopping stalls. Overall, a below average touristy town. We arrived on the train at night and stayed... More

Bus trip is very well organised. Get tickets from under the bridge near the railway. USD24 for adult return, kids 11 years and under are USD12. Buses never have queues/ lines more than 10 minutes. They take 25 minutes to get to the top. Lots of hairpins/ switch backs. Cafe and bag storage (USD1) are located at the entrance. Cafe... More

I have been to Machu Picchu three times. Agua Caliente is a small town with a (very) hot spring, inexpensive guest houses and a fe bars, restaurants and souvenir shops. Once at Amchu Picchu make sure you do the small steep trek to Waynu Picchu.
