    We did the trail (with kids) last September. Weather was OK - a little damp some days. We used trekking company Q'ente Tours + they were excellent!

    We stayed in Ollantaytambo at the stunning Station Hotel and took an early morning train, spent the entire day there then took a late afternoon train back. Could've stayed longer but had to push on. Glad we did as Colca Canyon and Cabanaconde were so worth making time for too. almost 7 years ago

    I have no recommendation for Aguas Calientes, but I stayed at El Tuco Hotel (http://www.eltuco.com/cuscoperu-en/index-en.php) in Cuzco and was very happy there. It's a nice, but inexpensive place and its owners Coco and Ana Maria are wonderful.

    You can stay easily from 15 soles for accomodation. Whole Aguas Calientes is a big group of hotels and restauranta, nothing else. However, if you want to do overcrowded and overpriced Inca Trail or come by overpriced train, you don't have to stay in AC. whatbudget do you have? almost 7 years ago

    We can pay whatever we need to, but would prefer to avoid crowds and over-priced luxury accommodations. We would prefer off-season travel and good healthy local foods. almost 7 years ago

    I had an amazing stay at a custom built, walled-in hotel called Villa Pachatusan | www.peru-hotel.net/villa_pachatusan.htm | hosts will need to drive you into town and will work with a tour agency for you. They are friends of people I knew in the US and I trust them. almost 7 years ago

    Hello there: my name is Angela, this is my husband account but we both use it. Let me recommend you that the best time to visit machu picchu is during summer holidays in the northern atmosphere but is also a very busy time full of people trying to see it. My husband and I did the inka trail during november and we it was good, not to busy, not to much sun and the weather was good. Peruvian food is interesting and very delicious , I recommend you to try the speciality of every city that you visit. You can also see other places like Arequipa, Iquitos, puno, Trujillo.... And so many others, if you would like a chat with us you can emails us at info@latitudejourney.co.uk , this is mine and my husband's travel company specialist in south America and I'm also peruvian. I very happy to recommend you more things, feel free to ask me any questions please. I hope to hear from you. over 6 years ago

    I stayed in the Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel. It was beautifully furnished, great service, spa-like environment. We loved it. This is right at the train stop in Aguascalientes. We got off the train, the hotel met us there and took our luggage and we walked over to the bus (buy tickets before hand in Cuzco for convenience) and boarded for the ride up to the citadel. Perfect. We went to Peru in July. Cuzco was very cold at night needing hats, gloves, coats but during the day we wore sweatshirts. Machu Picchu during the day we wore T-shirts.

    Nice buffet for lunch at the Sanctuary right at the top of the hill by Machu Picchu, but 700+ a night to stay. We purchased our trip and excursions through "Enjoy Peru". over 6 years ago
