Getting Around Aguas Calientes

Getting Around  Aguas Calientes

   There’s no public transportation in the town of  Aguas Calientes. The train station, restaurants, and tourist spots are all of them nearby and you can know all of them by taking a stroll. 

The village only has busses that take visitors to the Citadel gate every 20 minutes. However, the lack of transportation is not a problem. The village is tiny and reachable on foot. This allows for easy travel between locations without extra transportation.

This trait also keeps the site attractive and unique. It creates a calm and attractive setting where visitors may fully immerse themselves.

Wandering through its cobblestone alleyways is a more personal experience. Greenery surrounds them. The changes make the experience more real, allowing visitors to explore at their own speed and find the attraction's hidden gems.

In this way, the lack of public transit becomes a practical trait. It also adds to the charm of Aguas Calientes Machu Picchu.

Bus Service to Machu Picchu

In Aguas Calientes, you may walk or take an eco-friendly bus to Machu Picchu. While the trek takes around two hours to ascend and one hour to descend, the bus trip lasts about 30 minutes. 

Taking the bus is a more convenient option because it operates every day. It also goes around many stairs with hundreds of steps, making the walk more tough. 

You may buy your bus ticket in advance online or at the Consettur website. You may also buy it at the company's location in the village. When buying a bus ticket to the city of Inca rulers, you must pick an entrance date. You also need to provide your ID and personal info.

Buses to Machu Picchu leave from the village center and operate every 20 minutes. There is no need to arrange a certain time for the transport to the Unesco World Heritage site. Only one day till the trip begins!

The round-trip bus tickets to Machu Picchu costs US$24 (or US$12 each way).

The operating hours for the buses to enter Machu Picchu are:

Ascent:   Between 5:30 am and 3:30 pm

Descent: Between 6 am and 5:30 pm
