  • There isn't much to do in Aguascalientes, so you can entertain racing. A slightly more expensive normal market in Cuzco

  • The Crafts market of Aguas Calientes is complete and meets all the tourists and visitors seek, typical products of the region, textiles, shoes, handbags, jewelry, silver, paintings, ceramics, dishes, linens, glassware, artwork, paintings, decoration pieces, bed and table games, blankets, niqueleiras, alpaca wool coats, clothing, dolls, crafts, t-shirts, jackets , shirts, accessories, paintings, souvenirs, and souvenirs, among others. Housed in the access to PerúRail train station in a market filled with tents, offers a varied food court and it's worth researching both the prices and the quality of products, as it is possible to find great products at very affordable prices.

  • Aledaño place railway station, is more when you leave the train end up within the fair. There are many crafts and much silverware. There are many jobs. Prices are not gifted. It is the style racing to reach an agreement with the seller. It is a good choice to spend a time in the place and buy souvenirs.

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.
