Peru - Day 5 Part III - Aguas Calientes & Inkaterra Machu Picchu Hotel
Aguas Calientes is a small town of about 2,000 people located on the Vilcanota River and the Peru Rail line that runs to Cusco. The town is highly dependent on tourism....primarily Machu Picchu. There are hot mineral baths in town and some people come to take advantage of them. The town consists largely of restaurants and shops of all kinds.
The town is on both sides of a stream that feeds the river, so several pedestrian bridges connect the two sides of town.
This is the Cafe at the Inkaterra Hotel where we stayed. Like all the other places we stayed, they have great food.
