The entire town consists of souvenir shops, restaurants, bars, massage parlors, and statues of Inkas. Don't underestimate the amount of any of these establishments and locales.

Everything is over-priced! The town is great to experience....but really only for a day. Hike Putucusi, go to the Butterfly House, experience Machu Picchu....then leave!! Fun once, twice is too much!

It is an amazing place to visit. Be prepared for a long wait for the bus to return you down the mountain. There are lots of buses, but lots of people leaving about the same time.
