If you arrive early in Aguas Calientes you should walk around the village and go to that plaza at the bottom of the road. It's a nice place to sit and relax after all stairs.

AC itself has no cars or motor vehicles. It's a lovely place. The main square was clean with nice statue and sign. Great photo ops! Little store there has an ATM has a Global ATM there and several restaurants.
