Aguas Calientes, Machu Picchu Pueblo

Aguas Calientes is the colloquial name for Machu Picchu Pueblo, a town in Peru on the Urubamba (Vilcanota) River. It is best known as the closest access point to the tourist attraction Machu Picchu, which is 6 kilometres (3.7 mi) away, about 1.5 hours walk. It has many hotels and restaurants for tourists, as well as natural hot baths, which give the town its name ("hot waters" in Spanish). The baths were destroyed by floods several years ago, but have been rebuilt.
