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.

Freddie after our Machu Picchu tour.

I thought I was done with steps for the day after we left Machu Picchu.....I was wrong.

Our room with French Doors leading out to a nice patio.

Not a bad place to relax.

The hotel and all its buildings are in a very rustical setting.

We know all of our neighbors......even in Peru.

The steam room..........not too busy in the jungle.

The lobby has lots of room to gather and talk about KU basketball.

Another top notch dinner at the Cafe.

Time to rest up for tomorrow.
