One of the highlights of our trip, the visit to the Uros Island was a reminder of the differences between life in Western Europe and other parts of the world. The people live a frugal lifestyle in family groups on their own individual island but...More

Visited here by speed boat and were shown how they have to keep building up the reeds on the island every 20 days or so. They dress you up in costumes for photos and take you into their humble houses also made from reeds. A...More

We didn’t quite know what to expect on our trip to Uros but the place was very interesting with a lot of history. You get on a local boat made from straw and are dropped off on one of the many floating islands. You are...More

We went to a residential island so we experience families living at the island. We were given the option to go and stays at an island, please be aware that those hotels are made for tourists only.

Stop at Uros (Floating Island) where we met a family who showed us how they built floating islands and lived on the island, we saw two flamingos in flight (wow)!

Facinating, interesting and the community members were friendly and kind. However felt slightly uncomfortable as not sure if the floating communities of Uros are being exploited by tour companies. The tour guide told me that tours pay a fee to enter and that fee is...More

Our first night in Peru, different but already in love with that style, even if we'll stay in better places in the future. This cultural experience was a great start with very lovely people. Amazing how they manage their life in such a traditional way....More

Quite unique way of life demonstrated by local Aymary population, yet packed in a very comercial tourist package that creates an impression of artificial experience.
