It takes some time to get to lake Titicaca, but worth it. We took a boat tour of the Uros floating islands and Taquile Island. Each culture was very different and very interesting. You should read the separate reviews of each of these islands for more details. There are many more attractions around Puno and Lake Titicaca. I wish I... More

The visit begins with the meeting with the amerindians living on the lake. They explain how they make a living. Then we take a boat for an hour and we arrive to an island where people grow different plants for cooking and cleaning the wool. There are different species of potatoes. The lake is sublime with the sunshine.

Do both but Taquile we found more genuine. We did our tour through Lake Titicaca for you (Yoshi). A nice day tour.

Beautiful lake view from hotel Sonesta, choose your hotel carefully by the lake to enjoy the beauty of the lake and to avoid over exertion whilst at high altitudes. We spent days enjoying the view.

We took a trip on Lake Titicaca to the Uros floating Islands which are totally different to anything I have seen before. It is about a 40 minute trip from our hotel to the Islands and from the moment you step off the boat until you board the boat again you feel you are in a different world. The people... More

If you are in Puno, you really need to go to the lake and enjoy the scenery. The views are breathtaking.

fascinating islands, but residents trained to really pressure tourists to buy souvenirs. Cheaper in town, but bought from locals anyway. can take a ride on the reed boats for 10 sol (@$3 US). On a larger/central island, restaurant sells delicious quinoa fried bread for 2-3 sol. (under $1 US) NO BATHROOMS on islands.

We spent a couple of days on different Islands on Lake Titicaca, we had excellent weather and some amazing views of the Andes. Really enjoyed our whole time here and would recommend this place as a must do on any trip to South America
