#4 of 9 in Nature in Sacred Valley
Rejuvenate your muscles at Hot Springs (Aguas Calientes), a complex that includes natural thermal pools with different temperature, changing rooms, restrooms, hot and cold showers, and a small snack bar. 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. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Machu Picchu holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Hot Springs (Aguas Calientes) and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
