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

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

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 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

Pools are small but price is good. Water has a great temperature and does have a sulfuric smell but doesn't leave a trace. There's a bar serving Pisco Sour.

The hot springs are located on the top of the village. It is a set of pool filled up with hot sulfuric spring water. Don’t expect to swim here, but just to relax. The large pool also contains small round rocks that are massaging your feed when walking in the pool. It is a great way to recover from a... More

We were super excited to check out these hot springs. I'd read reviews, so I knew to expect that the water would look "dirty", but was actually the minerals from the springs. If you're not expecting this, then it would be a little off-putting to say the least. The staff and security were unpleasantly rude, but we tried to not... More

The hot springs were nice. They had a bunch of pools. It was pretty crowded when we went. The walk up was tiring. It was my first time in Aguas Calientes and I wasn't use to the altitude.
