We visited the place through and agency call Expedition Pacha, what a scam. The place is just ok, not worth any money to go there. Small village, just a few things to visit. We visited the fertility temple, it looks great and funny in the...More

Visiting Chucuito requires hiring a taxi as it's not part of a tour operator. The archaeological value is questionable.
