Avoid at all costs. We wouldn’t even dip our toes in the filthy water. You could see the gunk floating on top of the water. Tiles had mold on them. Total health hazard.

Located at the base of the valley below Machu Picchu, there is plenty of places to eat. Train runs through the centre of town and public buses up to Machu Picchu are only a short walk away.

I went to the "hot springs" that were not hot at all and did not have a good experience. The pools and the water are dirty, water also cold and they were really crowded. The customer service was also terrible. I wish somebody had warned...More

We went to the Hot Springs at around 6:30pm. (They close at 7:30pm and have to be out of there by 8:30pm). There are several "pools" each contained within a cement enclosure a lot like a swimming pool. They are all different temperatures so look...More

We were only in MP Pueblo for a little over 24 hours. But I'm really glad we fit in a visit to the hot springs. We followed recommendations to go early in the day. We were exhausted from traveling, and from our scramble from Sacred...More
