The last stop for Maachu Pichu they have a captive market.

At the end of the rail line leading to Maachu Pichu is the town of Aguas Caliente. The locals know they have a captive market and have raised the prices sky high. This is not the... read more

Very no frills. A lot left for wanting. Service was decent. Cocktails were well made but pricey. Felt kinda gross in some of the pools, and some were luke warm.

I lived in Japan for a long time, which might have the world's best hot spring/bath culture. The hot springs in Aguas Calientes weren't as good as most of the onsens I went to in Japan but were still good in their own right and worth visiting. There is only one establishment that operates these hot springs, so you don't... More

We done the 4 day trek and camped so when we arrived at Aqua Calientes I couldn't wait to visit the hot springs. I'll be honest, they are not the cleanest but still worth the visit. They have showers and a bar for drinks so you can get cleaned afterwards. It's all part of the experience and I found it... More

This was a cool thing to experience. Don't expect anything super clean like a pool, and it is not particularly fancy, but it is a good experience. If you are here, you should go... besides, there is not much else in town.

Bathing suits are mandatory when going in. Make sure to bring yours unless you dont mind having to rent one before entering.

Suitable to spend a great relaxing, comfortable, quiet, picturesque, with multiple options to acquire some gift. Incredible view between the mountains. the village is small but with several things to do, go out to get a drink, to eat and to the hot springs... is recommended

This is not the cleanest little stop. The accommodation is shoddy at best and way over priced. You can find some decent food but price is high. You... More

Was a little reluctant to go after reading some negative reviews but we went around 9.30 in the morning and loved the experience. Only about 10 people there, and several pools to try. The water didn't smell, was a beautiful temperature and it all seemed clean and hygienic. Only cold showers to rinse off afterwards, but that, as they say,... More
