We stayed one night. Overall, it's a great tour to experience traditional Uros life closely with the real Uros people. But, they should've set the expectation right. We received an email with action packed plans and we were excited, but that was our mistake. We...More

I spent two nights at the lodge and I have to say that it was ok. I don't agree with rachelwalker12 with her review because in my case I have slept well with all those blankets, and people there were just friendly and doing their...More

My stay was disastrous. The transfer met me at the bus station, then took me in a taxi to the lake where he had parked his boat. I had to wait 30 minutes as he wanted to give his sister a lift in the boat...More

A nice boat tour and very interesting. The whole "set-up" feels however as a "living-museum" and it's just a little bit too much.

In short: skip and stay in a hostel in Puno or do it just for the experience. I stayed on the island as part of a tour. I was told by the agent that for 50 soles I could visit the floating islands, stay the...More

Tourist are just money bags and we are treated so. You feel forced to buy something or take a rid on their boat and NOTHING is for free even if you already paid for the tour.

What is there not to like on the Uros Islands? Daily life is certainly different from what we are used to and the people gladly let us in on their daily routine. Warm greetings and super friendly people. Good explanations given as to how the...More

Its an interesting experience, to see the locals. But the only thing is that the locals are not that locals. I suspect they leave the islands when the night falls. Also, they are really touristic, they know the rate for dollar and euro.. But overall,...More

The peole make their own island. It is like walking on a water bed. They were freindly and informative. Selling to tourists is a big part of their economy but even that didn't mar the visit.

Mayara R
Oi, Pedro. Tudo bem? Estou interessada em visitar o Peru em abril/14, e pretendo incluir Puno no meu roteiro. Fiquei interessada na Ilha de Uros e Tequile. Li que para visitar ambos são 3 h de viagem de barco. É possível visitar os 2 no mesmo dia? Fica perto um do outro? Quanto tempo vale gastar em cada ilha? Tequile me pareceu mais interessante. Será que vale gastar mais tempo lá?
