Visited the floating islands on a private boat from the jetty which was easy to organise, less expensive than taking a tour and gave us more flexibility with our day. Arrived at the islands early so it was not busy and many families were setting up their artesania for sale. The way of life on these islands is fascinating - the explanations about how the islands are made, the original foods, how the community functions, their language and new developments were really interesting. Definitely a strong dependence on tourism and some residents are rather insistent about you purchasing goods but that is their livelihood now. Really a terrific day out on Lake Titicaca!
