Nestled in the heart of the mountain, the hot springs of Cocalmayo offer 4 pools directly connected to the mountain. The entrance is 20 soles (7$) which is very affordable one day after Machu Picchu

This was a great place to relax and spend time. It has snacks and drinks available to buy. I recommend going during the early evening as the waters are nice and hot and the crowds are smaller.

This is what we needed after a whole day hike (part of inka jungle trek). It was quite busy as it was weekend but it was definitely worth 10 soles entrence fee. Clean water, three pools, showers with hot and cold water. Just amazing

I love these hot springs! The temperatures in the various pools are perfect! I love the fact that there is a constant flow of water that keeps the pools nice and clean. The water is blue & crystal clear. It is a perfect way to relax after hiking in Machu Picchu!

Great experience, as it wasn't very busy. There are 4 pools to choose from from the "kiddy" pool to deeper pools as well - all varying temperatures. The changing rooms are minimal, but they are there. The road along the river is beautiful, a place not to miss.

Really we came here to camp - we had not realized the close proximity of the wonderfully clean and beautiful inset hot pools into the rock cliffs, neatly nestled next to the raging Urubamba river! Awesome. Go here, not Aguas Calientes.

The hot springs were a welcome relief after 6 days of trekking. Take the time to relax and soak away the sores in one of 3 pools, each at a different temperature. Spent over 3 hours there, saw lots of groups drop by for quick dip, which doesn't do justice to this natural outdoor experience. Much larger and less congested... More

Came here at the end of the 2nd day of the Inka Jungle Trek. The presence of JCBs indicated that there was building work going on, which detracted somewhat from the beauty of the location, but the pools were still warm and relaxing (or cold and invigorating, if that is what you wanted!). NB. The English used on the back... More

This is perfect for a weary hiker after the inca trail or machu picchu. The pools are large and vary in temperature. It's a bit expensive in (10soles). You can get a taxi to and from these baths for 5soles per person.
