Our tour guide pushed this hard but once we got there our tour group only stayed for about 10 minutes. It's a busy public pool with nowhere to sit in the pools and the water seems questionable. It's pretty cheap so not a big loss but I would save yourself the time and relax elsewhere.

Too crowded. Too many people. Dirty water. But at least it was warmish. Nice restaurant and also they have cheap swimsuit rentals. And after hiking machipichu we were ready to rest muscles. But we didn't find it very relaxing. However their hot shower that practically masseged your back was decent. Overall if you're bored. Go. It's 10 soles for foreigners.... More

Great place to relax after a day on Machu Picchu. The "hot" baths are not wildly hot, but a lovely gentle warm temperature. There are hot sprays and cold showers and a cold plunge pool available as well. This is not a luxury place, but it's well run and basically clean. Reassuringly, it seems to be popular with the locals.... More

It was so crowded with locals on Sunday. We were looking for a hot pool among 5 or 6 pools, but none was close to even warm. Otherwise, we enjoyed the pool against the crowd and the so so temperature. We felt relaxed in our muscle and the skin got soft after all. It's worth to try. One thing. There... More

Aguas Calientes is the name of these hot springs that has permeated to the whole town. It has several pools fed by the thermal springs. It's a typical spring with large pools, the water is brownish. You can rent towels and even rent bathing suits. The cost of entry is extremely low, and if you are Peruvian even more. It's... More

It was so thrilling to have the opportunity to experience the healing and restorative properties of the hot springs. The temperature of the water was perfect and the views were breathtaking!

The hot springs were mediocre, not as warm as my hot tub at home. I heard they clean them once a week so I must've been there on they day before they clean then cause they were dirty. I really liked that you could order drinks to your pool. Only two pool were warm and the others were cold so... More

the train was very slow, the traveling was very long, but we loved this city. Unfortunately we didn't sleep here, it was a mistake.

I visited Machu Picchu that morning and on a whim decided to go. It is a nice climb uphill, so be ready! I had no towel, but there are street vendors located on the walk up that will rent you a towel, so no need to haul one all the way up there! It was only 10 Soles to get... More

The hot spring is OK compared to other places I have been. There is really only one pool that is hot and it can get crowded. Only go if you have extra time and want to see it. My shower in the hotel was better
