Worth staying over night in Aguas Calientes near Machu Picchu?  (10 Answers)

I have signed up for the Inca Trail (4 day), which will let me arrive at Machu Picchu early in the morning before the crowds. I am wondering if it is wtill worthwhile to stay over night in Aguas Calientes for some other good reasons.

My travel agent would get my train ticket back to Cusco the next day, but only to Ollantaytambo train station and I will have to find and pay for the bus to get back to Cusco.

Thanks.

Can you buy bus ticket from Aguas Calientes to Machu Picchu in advance?  (2 Answers)

I'm visiting MP in July and really want to get the fist bus up from AC to MP (we will be staying overnight in AC on either end of our day at MP).

So my question is: is it first come, first served to get onto the first bus up to MP or can you buy tickets in advance. And if you can buy them in advance how do I do that?

Thank you!

Aguas Calientes v. Cuzco  (7 Answers)

I am planning my trip to Machu Picchu for early September and am wondering if it is worth spending the night in Aguas Calientes before I explore the ruins. I've read that it's not worth spending much time in Aguas Calientes, so don't plan that. I was thinking of going spending the night, explore the ruins, then take the train back to Cusco that evening. Do you believe it is worth spending the night so that I can get up early and beat most of the crowds to the ruins? Are the buses or other transport operating before the trains arrive from Cusco? Any advice would be much appreciated!

Cheers!

First time  (3 Answers)

Hi all,

Reading up on Aguas Calientes seems to remind me of Yangshuo in China. Are they similar in that it's like a backpackers' colony?

Just curious.

Highseason in July????  (2 Answers)

I am planning to spend with whole family some weeks in Ecuador next year. With my 12 years old son I would like to go to Machu Picchu. I wonder if in July/August it is dificult to find a budget hotel/hostal in Aguas Calientes as I do not want to book ahead.
I want to go to Cuzco (by plane from Ecuador???), spend there 2 days, then by train to Aguas Calientes, spend there a night and with the first bus tu Machu Picchu. When do the busses leave Aguas Calientes in the morning, and is it dificult to get tickets? Do 12 years olds have to pay entrance fee to MP?
A lot of quetions and I hope to get one or the other answer. Thanks.
