The town of Aguas Calientes – otherwise known as Machu Picchu pueblo – is the gateway to the magnificent Machu Picchu. It is therefore a tourist hotspot, as many people opt to stay the night here before rising in the early hours of the following morning to make the journey to the sacred Incan citadel. As this place basically serves as a stop-over point, there isn’t too much to do here. Despite this, you’ll find everything you need – restaurants, shops, and even massage parlours. Get some rest and an early night’s kip, as you’ll need all your energy for the big day tomorrow!
