I found this site to be very underwhelming. It was one of our last stops on the city tour and the sun was nearly down. I've seen many more impressive natural springs before. It was very, meh, especially after seeing Saksaywayman.

Easy to do when done with others in area. Recommended as you've already paid for it with boleto. Easy ruins to access and enjoy.

Very small ruins, we saw as part of a city tour. It reminds you though how amazing the Incas were, building all their places. Worth the visit. Make sure you take some soles so that you can have your photo taken when you walk in with the local ladies in traditional dress with their animals!

I would recommend visiting as part of a city tour. This would not have been as interesting without a guide to explain its significance. The walking we did at Tambomachay and on the rest of our city tour really helped us acclimate and prepare for the Inca Trail. Definitely worth the visit!

...to see something relatively minor. Towards end of 1/2 day tour; park at bottom and walk the 1/4 mile UP the closed road. Grab some corn [or get a llama pic] on the way up -- people seemed to enjoy that as much as the site itself. In a sense, outdoors baths but not associated with anything else in the near vicinity other than Puca Pucara, so it was unclear to me who the baths were for or whether they had spiritual/other value. Regardless, always interesting to see how relatively primative cultures moved water, especially in such a high region. Think these were natural springs from the mountain itself but the engineering nontheless always make me go, "gee". The walk up is a lungs workout but not thighs: base of road sits at 12,400 feet but only very slightly inclines.
