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.

These were disgusting - smelled like pee and looked like they were never cleaned. Also, the ticket window is a long way from the pools so you can't see what they look like before you buy the tickets and arrange to store your belongings in the lockers. Anyway, DON'T.

Worth a visit whilst in the area but not as spectacular as we were expecting it to be. Nice for a relax in between long hikes.

This was a lovely little town and the closest town to stay at for Macchu PIcchu. It has a busy little market in the middle of town and the people are very friendly. There are some great restaurants and a excellent French bakery. My only negative about this town is the way they dispose of their rubbish. The town is... More

We paid for the hot springs and when we walked up to it, we saw how crowded (wall to wall people) and uncleanly it looked. We decided to turn back and we at least got a refund (we told them one of the people in our group was feeling ill...). Perhaps we came at a busy time (late afternoon), and... More

I see there are many negative reviews, but we really liked the springs. Yes they are natural springs, but they do chlorinate them and the water was constantly flowing through the pools. I felt safe with me and my teenage children getting in the waters. We were there off season and in the afternoon so the pools were not over... More

It sounds exotic, but it isn't. It is essentially about 5-7 run-down public pools, packed with people. The water isn't that hot, and the sun is only visible for a short period since it is in a valley with steep sides. I would not recommend it.

In a good location. The food is just ok as is the coffee. I am sure there are better places in Aguas Calientes. Staff are friendly though.
