It is delightful to be immersed in the old hot pool scenario,Especially when it is a flash back to the wonderful days in the 70"s.Quaint decor and a pumping sound system as you move from one heat pool to another.

This place is not what I expected. The pools look dirty and locals bath here in the afternoon. If you must try this attraction I recommend that you stick to soaking under the warm running fountains rather than sitting in the pools.

From a town called 'hot water,' the springs were very disappointing - their temperature was luke warm. The only hot water you'll be receiving is from the pipes used to wash your body with your own cleaning products. Honestly, I do not regret going because my legs were very sore after the hike but otherwise I would not partake at... More

A decent way to finish after the inca trail. It's not the most pleasant of spas or hot springs that you'll come across but certainly felt like it refreshed the body post trek. 20 soles to get in and full of locals with good views on the walk up.

We went here as a group at the end of a very long day hiking around Machu Picchu. It was very nice to relax in!

If you're imagining a relaxing and soothing hot springs experience, think again. It could have been a wonderful place to hang out and enjoy the view of the mountains but unfortunately, they're hard to appreciate when the pool hygiene and its crowded surroundings are questionable at best. The change rooms stunk of urine and the pools weren't particularly warm either.... More

While visitng Macchu Picchu, perhaps after the Inca Trail, you should give yourself a treat in the hot springs in aguas calientes.

Compared to my first trip 8 years ago, this place has only become better. Its a good stop to do if you are going up or coming down from Machu Picchu. Although small, it has many interesting qualities - a soak in the hot springs, a melting pot of tourist, interesting art shops and the Andeans are just nice people... More

If you are heading up to machu picchu consider staying here. It's a tiny place where you can have a good time walking around and chatting with strangers. The food is mediocre but the overall ambiance is worth it.

There are natural hot springs here. Don't let the green color of the water deter you - it's the minerals! The natural springs are on terraces and the further you go down the terraces, the hotter the water gets! Interesting that as you soak in the tubs, you may order drinks delivered to you! There are free lockers for your... More
