Aguas Caliente is only here 'cause it sits right below MP. EVERYTHING here is a tourist trap. That being said, it's actually a pleasant little place, hostals, restaurants and gift shops fill up the two main (and several side) streets.

Unique Suggestions: Up at the high end of town are hot springs, you might as well go to the hot spring as they're the only thing here that's not expensive.
