#4 of 6 in Parks in Machu Picchu

Bring a swimsuit, and if you forget flip-flops and towels, you can rent some at the entrance. Don't be put off by the murky pools, as that is mostly the effect of sulfur and other minerals in the water.

  • UF! To reach Aguas Calientes, it is all a stretch. You have to go to Lima, from there a one hour flight to Cusco. Buses leave from Cusco to Ollantaytambo. And then this option of train to Aguas Calientes, which takes time and half approx. We were there the night before to go to Machu Picchu and the truth they breathed a very good atmosphere. Many foreign. Many places to eat. That if, are dinner early because the next day embarks on other buses very early in the morning to go to Machu Picchu. The people of the place is very nice. They can get good things in the market that there is, don't forget to "haggle" prices, always can be.
