Thermal Hot Springs
Attractions & Activities In Machu Picchu
Inject some pampering into your luxury tour of Machu Picchu with a soothing hot spring soak. The closest sulfur springs are those in Aguas Calientes. Tired trekkers flock here to soothe aches and pains in a handful of small concrete pools, where water temperatures range between 38 and 46 degrees Celsius. The best time to come is early in the morning (the pools open at 5 a.m.) as this is when they are at their quietest.
For an alternative bathing option, try the Santa Theresa Hot Springs, located less than four miles from Machu Picchu. This site has three pools, heated to between 40 and 44 degrees Celsius, as well as bathrooms, changing rooms, showers and a camping area. Those hiking the Salkantay trek will stop by these healing springs.
