If you go to Manchu Picchu, you will go from here. Get out as soon as you can! Overpriced and filthy. We saw local workers dumping garbage into the river, despite the recycling cans and mural encouraging reducing, reusing and recycling. It’s just a farce...More

This small town, middle on the Mountanis / Rain Forest, is almost impossible to reach by car (only by train or walking, because of its difficult acces). It has grown really fast, because of the amount of tourism going to Macchu Picchu, however, it is...More

We looked forward to a relaxing bath, but the pools were crowded and had no room to move. Remember to rent a towel in the shops close to the enterance before you go inside.

Me and my boyfriend had a wonderful time in the hot springs after the day at Machu Picchu. They serve drinks at the pool. We had a really nice sangria. For information you can only pay with cash, dollars or sol. We will highly recommend!

Was looking forward to the Hot Springs, but ultimately found out they are just basically small concrete/tile swimming pools of hot water pumped in. It felt dirty and unhygienic. If you are spending more than two days in Aguas, I guess it’s worth checking out,...More

It's probably the worst hot spring i have ever been too - it feels dirty, there aren't much variety in terms of pool temperature, the facilities are run-down, bathrooms are not up to my standard in terms of cleanliness BUT there just isn't anything else...More

Probably one of the best view is the walk to get to the hot springs, completely immerse in the nature. The springs themselves don't look particularly beautiful. Yet it is a nice place to relax. There are many locals, and far too many children (at...More
