At the foot of the mighty mountain that hosts the renowned Machu Picchu ruins is a small and charming town called Aguas Calientes (also known as "Pueblo Machu Picchu"). This quaint town has a selection of hostels, hotels, and diners that make it a great place to spend the night before or after your visit to one of the wonders of the world, Machu Picchu. If you've got the energy & the stamina, then depart early in the morning to summit the mountain on foot, or head up in one of the hourly buses that shuttle people to the entrance of the ancient Inca metropolis. It's also the base for the popular tours of the towering Hauyna Picchu. Afterwards, you can catch the train from the station in town and take it to Ollantaytambo and ultimately to the vibrant city of Cusco, just a few hours away through the scenic Sacred Valley.
