Travel Blogs from Aguas Calientes
Getting up at 3am after only a few hours of not so great sleep at La Pequena Casita (not a great place, but not bad either) was half exciting half awful....

Best location if you plan to get up to wait in line to climb wayna picchu!
you can literally stumble out the door to wait in line. also, if you're traveling with others, you can switch off and have breakfast/use the bathroom/take power naps.
this place wasn't the cleanest, brightest or prettiest, but it definitely did the trick. the shower was hot and the sheets were clean.
