“Paradise!”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

Beautiful views of Lake Titicaca and into Bolivia. A step back in time. It is so clean, peaceful and tranquil. Folks dress up in their native garb. Nice shops and restaurants.

“Nice views but long boat ride to get there.”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

Was nice but not really worth the 3 hour boat ride. Not much to see once on the island and the lunch was ok. The walk back to the boat once all the other tourist had left was the nicest part of the trip and very relaxing in the sunshine/views.

“enjoyed the walk”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

Stopped here on the way back to Puno from Amantani, a very different island. Taquile is very touristy and photogenic. We walked up a sloping path to the centre where you find the big craft shop, expensive but excellent quality. Had lunch overlooking the lake in a local run restaurant then walked down the steep steps on the other side of Taquile.

“Fab”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

It was quite a hike and if you're not acclimatized to the 4000 m altitude you may suffer, but give it a go. The local are gorgeous and the view of Titicaca is spectacular.
