Good option to stay

Not sure if they mean Aguas Calientes but you can also call it Machu Pichu Pueblo. Stay here at least one night and go back to Machu Pichu early in the morning without the crowds.

It was quite a steep climb up steps to begin our tour but so worth the effort. The views were amazing. The building and astronomical skills of the Incas are awe inspiring. We went as part of a Gate 1 tour and were impressed with the knowledge of our guide Ruben and the way he presented the information.

After Machu Picchu this is a wonderful area to walk around and explore. There are lot of restaurants, little vendor stalls to polk in and out of, plus lots of people watching. The train comes "crawls" through the middle of town and is an added surprise. The Urubamba River rushes along the only road access to vehicles (buses going up... More

We transited through Machu Picchu Pueblo, earlier known as Aquas Calientes - a picturesque town adjacent to river Urubamba in the Andes - on our way to and back from Machu Picchu. After our exhaustive tour of Machu Picchu we stopped by at Machu Picchu Pueblo the... More

We spent the day at Machu Picchu. We climbed Waynapicchu in the morning and had a private guided tour of the ruins in the afternoon. The climb was steep but worth it. The views were outstanding. There is more at Machu Picchu than I ever imagined looking at pictures over the past 50 years. You have to see it to... More

Check my travel map. I've been to 38 countries. I can tell you without a doubt that Machu Picchu is up there, amongst the best of the best. It's hard to put into words the phenomenal experience that it is to walk randomly the ancient city. It's stunning, breathtaking, amazing, absolutely unique and beautiful. The only tip I would give...
