    At about four kilometers road is very beautiful, I recommend not forget hat, insect repellent and sun screen for mosquitoes. The gardens themselves are picturesque and with little signs with the names of the species. I suggest to improve the signal to reach the falls, since a road section was brawl and who charged the entrance make mention of the existence of a map. Must-see MOM Angelica restaurant menu.

Where to stay in Aguas Calientes

Thanks to the town's proximity to Machu Picchu, most accommodations in Aguas Calientes charge considerably more than alternatives in slightly less popular locations. Mid-range hotels and economical hostels cover the needs of most visitors, from backpackers to families with young children. Many locals also rent rooms in their private homes--if you choose to go for that type of lodging, don't be afraid to haggle for the best price.
