Hot Springs! Well one decent pool.

I have to admit I'd recommend visiting these springs. I spent a couple of hours in the main pool which was certainly the warmest of them all. Yes, the changing area, lockers and area around the pools are generally tired but at 10 soles it's not going to break the bank. I would have revisited the springs after Machu Picchu... More

I am a hot springs fanatic and these were amazing. Lay in natural hot springs on sand and pebble floors while listening to the roar of the river below and looking up at the Andes. This place is very popular with locals and they are happy to help out. Take shampoo and rent a towel on your walk to the... More

This is a great place to go and soak your aching legs after walking around Machu Picchu or the Inka Trail. There are a number of pools with varying temperatures and a friendly cafe at the top with nice food.

Water was very dirty and had an interesting smell (that wasn't sulphur) and outside and inside locker area did not looked like it had been cleaned very much. Wasn't as hot as we would have liked it to be. Many locals and tourists we met did not recommend going to the hot springs. That is unfortunate because we stayed an... More

Great value for money, kids loved it (5 and 3 yrs) well worth bringing your swimmers. Scenic, short hike to get there! Cost ~10soles and less for the kids

A definite must after hiking Machu Picchu. It stays open until 8:30 pm. Cost is 10 soules plus 1 for locker. The pools have varying hot to warm temps and also hot or cold showers. It is located at the upper end of Aguas Calientes. Don't miss it!

These hot springs are located a few minutes' walk from the town centre. There is a series of communal pools. The smell and colour of the water are not very inviting.

We met a couple that said that we had to go to the hot springs, (aguas calientes). When we saw how dirty the water was, we literally turned around and went back into town.

A picturesque and fun stopover if you’re planning an early assault on Machu Picchu the next morning. The train journey from Cusco is memorable for its dramatic scenery and the sense of anticipation as you approach the land of the Hidden City. Once in Aguas, cruise the countless restaurants and tourist shops, but try to eat only in one that... More

Don't even think about it. Can't believe they call this a hot spring. It's a total waste of money unless you like bathing in dirty water
