Compared to my first trip 8 years ago, this place has only become better. Its a good stop to do if you are going up or coming down from Machu Picchu. Although small, it has many interesting qualities - a soak in the hot springs, a melting pot of tourist, interesting art shops and the Andeans are just nice people... More

If you are heading up to machu picchu consider staying here. It's a tiny place where you can have a good time walking around and chatting with strangers. The food is mediocre but the overall ambiance is worth it.

There are natural hot springs here. Don't let the green color of the water deter you - it's the minerals! The natural springs are on terraces and the further you go down the terraces, the hotter the water gets! Interesting that as you soak in the tubs, you may order drinks delivered to you! There are free lockers for your... More

After a grueling trek up Machu Picchu, there's nothing better than a good soak in the hot springs of Agues Calientes. The lush and colorful surroundings of the facility are delightful, as well as relaxing on the sore muscles and bones for older folks like us !!! And it's fun chatting with the variety of folks who share the pools... More

My girlfriend and I were really looking forward to the Hot Springs after a long and stressful day of traveling and hiking. It had been raining and we were chilled to the bone. We rented a towel from a vendor on the walk thru town as they do not provide any there. I think we paid 30-50 soles which was... More

The climb up the hill to the hot springs is well worth the effort. Bring your own towel; you're provided with a free locker for the admission charge. As it was a weekend, it was very busy with families but we found space in the hottest of the 5-6 pools and appreciated the heat & chemicals easing out tired muscles.... More

Great place to rest your weary legs after hiking. It isn't a luxury spa by any means. Nice to relax and have a drink in the natural waters. Seemed like mostly domestic tourists when I was there.

It's a pretty little town, but a little tacky and very touristy, in my opinion. Many restaurants and shops, but everything was quite a fair bit more expensive. We brought water and snacks from Santa Teresa instead of buying supplies here. I only spent time here so that we could get an early start to climb Machu Picchu in the... More

This is the perfect place to relax after climbing Machu Picchu. But be warned: No frills. This isn't some NYC spa. And the locales bathe themselves in the pools. Rent a towel in town and then head up hill to the springs. We spent about 30 minutes in the springs, which is the perfect amount of time.

not what I expected. Did not even go. The hot springs were a long walk and the area is covered with mosquitos. HOT, is a relative term I'd say they are around 80 degrees. Skip it.
