The main thing is to learn about the history, how the floating islands are formed and the way of life on the islands. It has however become quite commercialized along with activities tailored to tourists.

The experience is commercialized as to be expected of any established touristic attraction. The experience is still worth the visit as the numbers of visitors are substantially less compared to attractions in other countries.

We stayed at Libertador hotel (see seperate review) right on Lake Titicaca and they have their own wharf for ferry trips to the Uros Floating Islands. The Islands are an experience not to be missed. We had read about them, but to actually visit them...More

It was a privilege to step onto one of these islands and understand a culture that is unchanged for centuries.

Without a doubt, this is a lovely place and a must see, if you’re in Puno. However, expect everyone, from travel company to indigenous people, trying to rip you off. First, prices vary from S/5 to S/50 and you’ll end up on the same boat,...More

Having seen the floating islands on TV hundreds of times, to actually visit was incredible. We got a lesson in how the islands are made and maintained, and a ride on a reed boat. Please visit

We took a ferry to two Uros islands from the main dock in Puno, 18 soles for ferry and ticket to get on the island. The islands were a tourist trap, packaged culture and awkward constant nagging to purchase “traditional boat rides” and typical Peruvian...More

Very interesting talk by a resident. Interesting to see how satisfied and happy they were with their lifestyle. I was surprised that there was movement underfoot!

I didn't find it 'touristy'. In fact I liked to contribute to the community. I had a 2.5 hour tour, which was enough for me, but it would be nicer to stay on the island than stay in Puno town. I spoke to one couple who... More

The boats are mostly leaving in the morning, I guess spending a night in Puno instead is the option.
