Stay at the only hotel located just next to the entrance to the site itself, a 20-minute bus ride up from the main village of Aguas Calientes where the other hotels can be found. Choose to return to Machu Picchu the following day and hike one of the two mountains which are located within the site, or simply continue your journey to Cuzco.
