"A Quaint Town at the Base of Machu Picchu" Aguas Calientes by neurochic

Aguas Calientes Travel Guide: 24 reviews and 61 photos

Aguas Calientes is a nice small town for you to call home for a night while you are visiting Machu Picchu. It is located at the base of the site and is the stomping ground where you will find all that you need to visit Machu Picchu. This is the town where you will buy passes to visit Machu Picchu, where you will buy bus tickets to visit the site, and where the train will drop you off at to get to the site. It is also the place where you will find food and relaxation before and after you visit the historic site. I strongly recommend staying here overnight when you decide to visit Machu Picchu. It is a very nice town with great people and is worth the one night visit. This way you won't feel rushed while visiting the site, as well as you will have a nice place to rest at before making the long journey back via train to Cusco.
