Full description
Your tour will begin between 6:00AM and 7:00AM, at which point you will transfer from your Central Puno hotel to the port. You will then travel by motor boat (which is 35 feet long with a covered section in case of rain or cold weather) to the Uros floating islands. Stepping on these islands feels very much like being on a water bed, but is completely safe. You will see houses and many islands, as you meet the friendly local inhabitants who are descendants of one of the oldest South American groups. Rides on traditional reed boats can be arranged, and you will visit two of the 60 islands before continuing on to Taquile Island. Following a relaxed 2.5-hour navigation, you will get the chance to enjoy the spectacular views offered by Lake Titicaca. Once there, you will discover a unique community, before a long gradually ascending path takes you to the village. You can visit the communal cooperative where you will find handicraft textiles of high quality, before you eventually depart back to Puno City at 2:30PM. At 5:30PM you will arrive to Puno, at which point you will be taken back to your hotel.

The island of Uros is not from another world, it is very dedicated to tourism, so it loses all its charm. The ship is very slow and the return became very long. Taquile Island was what we liked the most. And you can't miss the trout, it's delicious.
