Homestay for Xmas on Lake Titicaca

I am planning to be at Lake Titicaca for a couple of days before Xmas this year (2012) and want to stay with a local family for xmas day - I am female travelling solo and aged late 50's. Does anyone have any information on homestays either in the Puno area or on the lake - I am particularly interested in Isla del Sol as the rumoured birthplace of Inca civilisation. Thanks

I did the homestay on Amantaní right around Xmas as well. I really enjoyed the experience. The lake tour and homestay were booked as part of my custom itinerary so I don't know which operator in Puno actually conducted the trip. We visited Uros, Amantaní, and Taquile in two days. I, too, was a female traveling solo.

I will also be on the lake at the same time, will be travelling with a friend, would look forward to meeting westerners...

Do I need a Bolivian visa to visit/stay on the Island of the Sun in Lake Titicaca?

Yes, for US citizens you need a Bolivian visa which is $135 (unless they raise it).
