Aguas Calientes

Serving as the gateway to the ruins of Machu Picchu, Aguas Calientes is little more than a glorified cloud-forest village, housing just over a thousand permanent residents and featuring all of two streets. Most people take a trip to Aguas Calientes from Cusco, staying the night in order to hike to Machu Picchu first thing in the morning. In spite of the relatively few tourist attractions in Aguas Calientes and the notoriously high prices, it's worth spending some time here wandering through the lush jungle, which shelters several hummingbird species and many orchid varieties found nowhere else in the world. Aguas Calientes is in Machu Picchu. Add Aguas Calientes and other destinations to your itinerary using our Peru road trip planning app , and learn about what to see, what to do, and where to stay.
