While the Lake itself is interesting and the floating islands are cool to visit, this is definitely a trip that can be skipped if you have to choose. Unfortunately, the visit to the islands is a way to peddle goods at you. Once you do the lake, there really isn't much else to see outside of the Plaza. Not worth... More

Another great experience. One of the few places I have been where you can be freezing and sunburning at the same time. Take the trip out to the Floating Village. There are 42 of these manmade islands built of reeds, which have been inhabited by the Uro's since pre-Incan days.

We booked a tour of one day. It was a lot of time spend on the boat for about 2 hours of visiting. The floating islands (Uros) seemed fake and everybody seemed to have dress up for the tourists to sell things. The Taquile Island was very nice and the view of the lake is great from there!

Staying on the lake and exploring the surrounding area was amazing. The city of Puno is gorgeous - great food, nice hotels and hostels, and fun little excursions from town.

This is a very beautiful Lake, located in the town of Puno which is a very crowded busy town with small streets. In one section of the Lake there are floating Islands that are made from reeds growing in that area. One or two families live on each Island that needs constant upkeep to keep it dry and floating. The... More

There are a few ruins doted on some of the islands within Lake Titicaca. They are tiny compared to other archeological sites. The trek isn't too long and is a good starting point if you are suffering from altitude sickness. Make sure the tour agent gives a synopsis of what is being provided.

German with Titicaca Tours was great! He replied quickly to emails. When we let him know we were nervous about not being picked up for our tour, as we were on a time crunch, he met us at the bus station in the early morning. We greatly appreciated his help with setting up our overnight homestay tour on Amantani Island.... More

This is such a special place I can't say enough about the extraordinary day visiting Los Uros taken with KollaSuyo Travel to the island. Their trip was faster than other boats and it is worthwhile checking the travel time when booking with agents. The people are extraordinarily happy and the opportunity to see their past way of life made us... More

I'll never forget my time on the lake, visiting the Uros islands and tequile. I was in awe the whole time - well worth the travel time to get there!
