    The craft market of Aguas Calientes is glued to the train station of pueblo, so that, as soon as it left the station (in our case, we went and back through the company PeruRail, train Expedition, excellent), I fell in the market, which has excellent options and, in Peru , the bargain is always important, and in 100% of the time it works. So happy shopping and enjoy your stay in this friendly and inviting little town that so worth it to be treated not only as a "passage" to the archaeological site of Machu Picchu!:)

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.
