Loved this town, sitting at the foot of machipichu mountain. It is a spendy tourist trap, but you can find somw amazing good food for reasonable when you look. Your best bet is mercado central that sits right on the tracks. Ranging from 5-15 soles. You get a real peruvian meal. Also, this town is super pretty in the mornings.... More

The Machu Picchu Pueblo is so gorgeous. It is amazing how the incans built this place. If you are in to geology, architecture, hiking, climbing, or more you should see this place! It is truly a world wonder!

This town is all about tourists, that means you can find restaurants with different types of food, hostels, etc My advice for you is that you have to buy some fruit or water at the market. Food here is expensive. Also souvenirs are very expensive so if you wanna buy some better do it in Cusco.

This interesting town is definitely geared to the tourist industry. Most of the streets are pedestrian-only lanes. Although the lanes are quite steep in some sections, walking around town is quite easy. There are plenty of restaurants around. The market near the train station is definitely worth a visit for souvenirs and gifts.

It's my second time in Machu Pichu Pueblo, now was the first time I actually walked the town. It was a pleasant surprise to find a small square that reminded me of a small town in Europe, and by this I don't mean it does not have the nice authentic Peru character, I mean is cozy, warm and full of...

I read a lot of reviews that were not very positive about this little town, also called Aguas Callientes, but my family found it to be a fun little place to explore and go back and forth to Machu Picchu.

Make sure to wake up early (5am) so you can get a bus ride to the top before the crowds arrive (around 10 am it really starts to get packet). You can hire a guide for around 30 soles if you tell him/her you don't mind doing the tour in a small group (6 or so people), and the explanations... More

Wide variety of vendors all in one area. Lots of duplication of items for sale so stroll through the whole place and look for someone that you can connect with, or who is eager to give you a deal.

We recently spent 2 nights in Aguas Calientes. This small mountain village has a bustling market with a great vibe where you can buy souvenirs, knitwear, bags, leather goods, footwear, hats, musical instruments… Almost anything you can think of! At night the streets come alive and the main plaza is abuzz with activities, food stalls and families out for a... More

Aguas Calientes is a tiny town at the base of the mountain Machu Picchu sits on. Words cannot describe the town. It was something out of a movie. It was nestled between maybe five huge mountains and had a river running along side of it. The boulders in the river were the size of houses. I have never seen anything... More
