  • The craft market of Aguas Calientes unfolds in a series of narrow streets lined with shops and stalls. The offered products are in line with those found elsewhere but the prices are higher than in Cusco or Lima. It's worth a spin if you have time, maybe waiting to catch the train

  • This outdoor market is a maze of family-owned shops and kiosks with a wide variety of handmade goods. You can find some colorful shoes and clothing along with novelty games and other goods. 
  • In this market, located right in the heart of Aguas Calientes, you can meet a wide variety of local crafts at good prices. The bargain is a well accepted practice.
