What can you expect when you are at the foot of such a mighty tourist attaction, but the market is great, the ambiance is nice and relaxed, the river is amazing - go sit by it. The food varies so ask your B&B/hotel for a recommendation - as does the service. Our B&B host told us that some establishments will... More

At the foot of MP, you will probably guess that this is a popular and touristy location. It does have an odd, wild west charm with the railway running through a central street! We were lucky to have our tour guide take us to a tour guide's bar. It had some wacky shots and the best fried chicken anyone in... More

Except for Machu Picchu ruins, there is almost nothing to do in this village. Ok, you can find restaurantes, small hotels and street markets, but you can find better and cheaper options in Cusco and other cities. One night is enough there, only to visit the archaeological site. In this city, some people visit the thermal waters. I didn't go... More

Weather cooperated. Go with a guide or you will miss out on the incredible history. Wonderful views. At times the hike is a bit hard but anyone can do it. Wayna Picchu is a hard challenging climb. Not a hike.

No reason to go here except for its proximity to Machu Picchu. Craft market is a good place to get some cheap blankets, bags, trinkets etc but expect to be jumped on if you even show mild interest in an item (never take the first price they state, the expectation is that you will haggle). Lots of little restaurants-our guide... More

This world famous site needs no introduction. If you go in the rainy season, the clothing shop at the site sells cheap plastic ponchos. It seems to rain from midday onwards, and you can stamp your passport at the little table just outside the luggage store.

Not really the place you would seek to go to if it wasn't for Machu Picchu. It is completely set up to service the tourists who flock here. Dining options are numerous, but menu variety is limited. Prices are high in all aspects. The bus to Machu Picchu is $19US dollars return for a 30 minute ride. Food prices for... More

Good thing to have a guide, form a group as it is much cheaper...we visited the site for 2 days in a row, one for walking and picturing and the other for tour guide...once you are in such spot, take your time....as weather changes hourly, its...
