I don't have a lot of hot springs to compare this to, but it was just meh. The water in all the pools was a murky color. The attendant also insisted on taking all of our clothing and shoes except the swimsuits we were wearing. There was a locker room, but we didn't use it. There are pretty views and... More

The entrance is 10soles pp and there are at least 5 pools. It wasn´t very busy when we visited so we mostly had the pool for ourselves. Water was nice and warm! Great relax for everyone!

Was expecting actual hot springs... it was dirty Luke warm bath water with way too many people. I do not recommend. There are much better things to spend your time doing during your stay in Aguas!

So glad that we went after our hike! everything was perfect! The jungle scenery the hand-painted murals, the gravel at the bottom of the Hot Springs, the Peruvian music playing! I would highly recommend coming here after the Inca Trail hike, our muscle recovery was really sped up!

With a whole day to do things before the next day's hike of Machu Picchu, my 5 travel companions and I explored. Alas, I was to be alone on the hike up the mountain side to Aquas Callientes, but it was so worth it! You hike straight up from the village square. The last shops rent towels if you are... More

First of all, you have to hike up a HUGE hill through the cobble alleyways, which would not be a problem, had you just not hiked the trail or Machu Piccu. When we were told about the "hot springs", I thought it would be some nature walk to a more natural area, with natural hot springs. It should more appropriately... More

There are different temperatures of pools. The locals use it too. I didn't like the long walk uphill - but it was worth it!

Nice place, I think it was like 10 Soles to get in, (towels extra). I was expecting more of a natural feel to it, instead of just big concrete swimming pools.

Unless your some prude who needs the water to be the perfect color this place is definite worth a visit for 1-2 hours. 10 soles entry, the largest pool has the best temperature. It got a little crowded around 330ish but before then there were no more than ~10 people. You can rent towels on the way there (u won't... More

We trekked in Ollantaytambo before heading to Machu Picchu. I was delighted to dip into a hot spring to relieve my achy muscles. To be fair, the place doesn't look like a natural hot spring. They have a series of concrete swimming pools that are filled with the naturally warm waters. The water itself isn't treated so it's not crystal... More
