Cusco: Tren a Machupicchu The traditional way to get Machu Picchu is by train. The departure is from the San Pedro station in Cusco early in the morning. It takes nearly 3 hours and a half to get to Aguas Calientes, following the course of Vilcanota River. In Machu Picchu we have about 2 hours and a half for our guided tour and another hour and a half to explore the ruins individually. The train back to Cusco departs around 4:00pm..

There are hotels in Aguas Calientes from $ 10.00 till $ 200 per person for the night. You can also visit the famous Hot Water Springs in Aguas Calientes
