We visited Lake Titicaca as part of our travels. Went to one of the smaller reed islands and visited a small group. Interesting. Life is tough. They sell there own handicrafts at reasonable prices and they are open to bartering. Try not to go to the larger reed islands which are located closer to the mainland as i have been... More

Our group of 6 took a pre-arranged motor launch trip across Lake Titikaka from the port of Cusco to the destination Amanti Island, but with a couple of stops. Our ride began with a visit to the reed islands of Uros and ended with an overnight homestay on Amanti Island. On Amanti we hiked up Pachamama and watched a spectacular... More

We finished a tour of Peru with a stop at Lake Titicaca. Of all of the places we visited in Peru, this was our favorite. We have never felt so welcomed into a culture like we were by the lake people. It was fascinating to see these kind and loving folks and to learn about their life on their secluded,... More

The location is unique - high mountain lake which looks a bit like the Aegean, Greek island style islands (if you overlook the terracing) and in the background the Royal mountain range of majestic peaks. We stayed on a catamaran, and the main focus of our visit was Sun Island. We enjoyed superb weather. Sun Island is laid back and... More

I was expecting the landscape to be busy because though its at altitude I have had the desire to visit since I was young(and I am no loner that). So even though the quiet season it nearly deathly quiet e.g. 3 or 4 boats visible on the lake . It was very tranquil and we had an enjoyable cruise .I... More

Had a grimpse of Lake Titicaca on arrival in Puno from our Hotel. It was no doubt beautiful. The next morning, we went from Puno to Copacabana to cross the Peru - Bolivia border in order to take the 2-Day-1-Night Titicaca Catamaran Cruise. It was an interesting experience to cross the border there, as it was literally a chain separating... More

We booked a local cultural tour with Inca Lake and it was fabulous. We joined our tour guide (local person who lived on the islands) in a small boat and wove our way through the Reed Reserve. We then went to his families are on the island and learned how they lived, how the children went to school and generally... More

We turned up at the dock in Puno one morning and organised with a person in the Amantani office for an overnight stay on the island. This also included a visit to the floating islands on the way and a stop on Taquile island on the way back. You are in for a slow boat ride so be warned. The... More

Lake Titicaca is one of the places I always wanted to visit. Its position, history connected to it, people living on floating islands... everything is very fasinating. Our tour guide explained us how is it to live on those islands, because he grew up on one of them. This place was right as I expected, very misterious, but somehow calm... More

What a place , the floating Islands were fascinating and the people that live there although a tourist attraction still have to live on a hay island. Took some pencils and paper for the children which were recommended to us by our hotel instead of sweets , good to see people living in a different era but seemingly happy ,... More
