The city of Machu Picchu in one day


I can't help thinking that today, that which always helps us with time, cannot fail us.
And so the minutes pass until at 4 o'clock the alarm sounds and we pull the bed straight towards the window: it has stopped raining. The smile on our face is a poem.
We are going to clean up and fix the backpack that we will leave at the hostel until this afternoon that we return from our visit to the city ​​of Machu Picchu in one day and take the train to Ollantaytambo.
Breakfast starts at 5, so it's time to have breakfast in turns to queue as soon as possible at the bus stop. bus that takes from Aguascalientes to the city of Machu Picchu, which yesterday when we arrived in Aguascalientes we took the tickets to advance time.
When it is 5.15 in the morning I go to the queue to make the change and there are so many people that the queue comes almost to the door of the hotel and Roger is almost at the beginning, so he says he prefers not to go to breakfast and wait for him to leave The first bus for a few minutes.
And in 5 minutes, at 5.20 in the morning we are mounted in the first bus that takes us direct to the city of Machu Picchu.

Remember that there is a limited number of tickets to see Machu Picchu and they sell out quickly, so you have to book as far in advance as possible. In addition, as it happened to us and many travelers have explained to us, buying them through the official website is often problematic, since non-Peruvian cards give payment errors. With this in mind, a good option is to reserve the official Ticket for the Lost Citadel of Machu Picchu here.
