TravelPod Member ReviewsWiracocha Inn Aguas Calientes
The room is beautiful, it's a corner room on the 2nd floor with a beautiful view of the roaring river out two extra large windows.
Breakfast is the usual--bread, butter, jam, fresh juice, eggs, coffee, tea, banana.
The owner is so nice, he just couldn't be nicer.
