Don't be put off by the murky pools, as that is mostly the effect of sulfur and other minerals in the water.

  • Águas Calientes is a tourist town with thermal water spa. The pools are somewhat small but the most interesting is that the city, due to the altitude, has very mild temperatures, which makes the attraction very inviting. Particularly for those who make the trail of the Sacred Valley, which lasts around four days and has camps without hot showers (sometimes even without cold baths), the resort is a true Oasis. For those who visit the sanctuary of Machu Pichu in the morning, can book the afternoon for a rest watered to a good wine in the thermal waters.

  • the water was well hot, only it wasn't clean, serious because of the excess of people who had in the pools
