We stopped for two nights in Puno and enjoyed our day trip the floating islands and one of the larger permanent island on the Lake. It was really interesting to learn how the people live and understand more about their local customs (especially who is single,engaged or married)!

We stayed with a family who welcomed us into their home and cooked for us ( no hotels on island) . Evening entertainment of all townsfolk... More

Incredible lake, so big that it seems a sea! The view and the landscape are great. The best you can do is take a boat from Puno and visit Uros floating islands, then Taquile and maybe Amantani. Absolutely worth a visit.

We toured both Uros Island and Taquile island. Both worth visiting even though they have different characters. On a sunny day, it was a wonderful outing.

This was a lovely lake. Our guide wS able to explain where we were on the lake and where the lake went. It is a huge lake. We were at the end of the dry season but he said in the rainy season it will be at least four feet higher. The ride was very smooth so no one was... More

We visited Lake Titicaca with Edgar Adventures. It was impressive to see the culture and people of Taquile island and to learn of their lifestyle. The floating islands of Uros are unlike anything we had seen. It was amazing to learn how they are built and maintained. The overall beauty and expanse of the lake is amazing. We're glad we... More

Gorgeous day, with a leisure boat ride to visit different locations on this highest lake, it shares a natural border with Bolivia. The snow peaks of Bolivia are visible in distance. Unique tribes are inhabitants of this lake.

We spent a day out on Lake Titicaca, visiting the floating reed islands of Uros and then onto Taquile Island for lunch. The many (96 ?) islands constitute the area of Uros, and is certainly worth the visi to see how these folk live on 'floating islands'. A nice cultural experience with a good explanation as to how the islands... More

From the point of departure at the Puno malecone to approximately an hour into the boat ride (about the time when one reaches Uros Island, the fishing commune that is one of the two greatest tourist draws on the Lake, the Lake is a sickly green, with vast stands of marsh-like reeds and their attendant nesting bird flocks.
