Relaxing soak after a hike at Machu Picchu

Everyone is very nice, and it is well organized. But the springs are not very hot. It is pretty crowded, and germaphobes will freak.

No swim suit or towel? No worries. You can rent such items at local stores. It costs 20 soles for foreigners, 10 for Peruvians. You leave your stuff with staff who lock it up in a locker and give you the key. There are half a dozen pools. The water is a murky colour but signs in Spanish say this... More

We went after our Inca trail hike. It's a long walk up from the station. We had taken only necessary items and rented towels and swimming suits which was very convenient. The place looks dull but it has all the amenities like changing rooms and bathrooms and lockers. We were a bit disappointed with the water which was lukewarm. THe... More

Torrid excuse for a hot springs bath. It's a touristy space of 4 or 5 small pools, about 10x10m, with dirty water and electronic music. Very commercial, very touristy. Not worth going out of your way for, definitely not for S$20. I suggest the MP Museum instead.

this hot spring is not clean, lack of maintenance and not safe. Aguas calientes town also is a tourist town just to purchase food and host, as a previous stop before visiting Machu Picchu.

This town exists for the sole purpose of catering to tourists. That being said, it's a comfortable place to stay while visiting Machu Picchu.

This wasn't quite what we expected. It was a pretty long hike from our hotel up to the hot springs (after we were already tired from our day hike). You have to bring your own towel, or rent one from one of the shops outside the gate. Tickets cost 20 soles each. After another hike to get to the actual... More

We were recommended by our tour guide to go here and were disappointed. The staff was nice enough. There were lockers to hold your shoes and small backpacks. However there were no shower facilities in the change rooms. Also not being big community hot tub users at home we found it hard to bathe here. We didn't stay long and... More

The most expensive termal waters we have found in Peru. The water isn't hot enough. You have to stand in the pools for there are no seats and the structure is not good.
