The most expensive termal waters we have found in Peru. The water isn't hot enough. You have to stand in the pools for there are no seats and the structure is not good.

The smell some people refer to is Sulphur a naturally occurring substance. I fully recommend an hour or so there and do a bit of people watching

It is a long steep walk up from town to the Hot Springs but you will be rewarded with wonderful relaxation in the pools of thermal water and beautiful views of the surrounding mountain area. Drinks and food are available pool side as well as in the culturally decorated bar.

Well the town is pretty, especially if you walk by the river and look up to the mountains. We were seriously overcharged for coffee in the square. The hot springs are hot but the water looks a bit murky. I'm not sure if this is the natural minerals or the number of people using the baths! We did spend a... More

Don't let the internet naysayers fool you. Aguas caliente is a great little mountain town. Friendly folks, decent food and easy access to Macchu Picchu. It certainly doesn't have the historical qualifications of much older nearby villages and obviously still under construction in many ways... but we have traveled extensively and really enjoyed this place. Local topography is stunning. Hot... More

This place is such a small and beautiful little town. The area has a great vibe with lots of great little bars and restaurants around.

I was the only gringa there. Maybe it was due to the mudslide that blocked the train tracks from Cusco. Not fancy, but certainly enjoyable. I'd go back.

I went this past weekend to check out these hot springs. The pools were extremely dirty and literally with shoulder to shoulder people in them (tourists & locals alike). The bar also serves people who are in the pools, which means you are pretty much swimming in urine. I was so disgusted I didn't even attempt getting in the water!

Was told entrance was 10soles but it's 20soles. Can rent a bathing suit if needed for 3-6soles at shops at entrance ( must have, can't go in skivvies). Located at top of AC with a long walk from ticket booth to entrance. These are man made pools fed by hot springs. Water is greenish brown in color and gets darker... More
