El Mapi is a cozy, clean, and contemporary retreat nestled into the village of Aguas Calientes beneath Machu Picchu. With fresh and clean facilities and a lively, down-to-earth feel, El Mapi makes a great hotel option for travelers looking for a less expensive option than the pricey Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge.

Owned and operated by Inkaterra, an award winning ecologically conscious hotel chain, El Mapi has great atmosphere and ranks beside the Pueblo Hotel as one of the most environmentally sustainable hotels at Machu Picchu. Choose between a Superior Deluxe Room or upgrade to Suite, both include excellent amenities such as wifi and natural herbal remedies from the surrounding Cloud Forest. Every traveler who stays at El Mapi is granted a complimentary Pisco Sour, a nutritious buffet breakfast, and an a la carte dinner at the in-house La Cafetería. After a long day of hiking at Machu Picchu or Huayna Picchu, stop by the hotel’s exquisite “El Bar” and share your experience at Machu Picchu with like-minded travelers.
