Taypikala Hotel Lago is located outside of Puno by about 15 minutes and just down the road from a quiet little town of Chuquito- where ever store owner is pleasant, smiles and is extremely friendly and helpful.

The hotel is situated right on the shores of Lake Titicaca and waking up to the sunrise over the lake each morning was breathtaking! Due to its location, the hotel is extremely quiet and peaceful.

The staff was amazing---friendly, helpful, took special orders in the dining room for special meals and offered a delicious breakfast buffet. The gift shop may look small but has hundreds of hidden gems to look at and purchase.

The rooms are very comfortable and clean- and again many of the rooms have lake views- which was fabulous.

Hotel staff was fantastic in helping with all needs. Breakfast was fresh and delicious. Setting was lovely over the lake and very peaceful environment. This hotel will exceed your expectations.

Room Tip: Request a room looking out over the lake

strange-looking hotel, architecturally quite different but the food, room & location are quite good - one of the better places we stayed during our time in peru. there are beautiful views of lake titicaca from the rooms & rooftop & it is located in the small town of chocuito, outside of puno, which is a plus!

Hi everybody,
I stayed at the Taypikala Lago, on August and for three nights.
Me and my fiancée got just married on June, and we decided to get away from the noise and stress of the big city.
This hotel lies right on the lake shores, and it has the BEST views from almost everyspot.
The personnel was always attentive and assertive.

A trip we will never forget...
