Is it worth staying an extra night here after the Inca Trail?

I stayed in Aguas Calientes after visting Machu Picchu and I'd advise anyone else with the time to do the same. It means that you don't have to rush down from MP in order to catch your train. I don't know what the train schedules are for the morning though because I was a cheapskate and avoided paying for the train by walking along the tracks.

Cheers,
Ron

We ended up not staying and found we had plenty of time... our train was not until 4:00. There isnīt much there I donīt think save the hot springs, but everyone told us they were nasty, so we decided against it!

Hello,

Aguas Calientes is just an outpost with no attraction other than Machu Picchu. It only exists because from there it is possible to take a bus ride to the top of the mountain to visit the ruins.

anyway you can have a rest in the local spa (yes! they're nasty! dance3.gif ), like I did during my visit:
