Great view with a cute bar to hangout. However concrete pools are dirty water and not clean. Stuff floating in the water. Crowded which was expected. Highest water temperature was 99°. Very unimpressive

The springs are located at the very top of Aguas Calientes - if you just continue walking uphill from pretty much anywhere in town you will eventually find the entrance. Admission is 20 soles, which is about $6-7 as of 09/2017. It's a pretty low...More
