When we went to Machu Picchu we stayed at a little town called Aguas Calientes (hot water) which is right at the base of the mountains and dispatch point for Machu Picchu. This little city is special because it is tiny and you can only get there by train and there are NO cars in this little town. It is built up by a huge river in the bottom of a steep jungle canyon. It is so beautiful.
