Details of Day Tours

After breakfast at your hotel, you will be transferred to the lake port of Puno, where a speedboat or a regular boat (depending on the option chosen) will take you to the floating islands of the Uros.


The Uros are an ancestral society that populate a series of artificial islands built on the basis of the totora plant, which grows in the same lake. The islands are constructed by weaving the totora in the places where it grows thicker and forming a natural layer. On top of it they built their houses, also of totora, and cook outdoors to prevent possible fires.


If you chose the half day excursion to the Uros floating islands, you will be transferred to the hotel. 


If you chose the full day tour Uros floating islands & Taquile Island, after Uros visit and, an hour and a half boat trip, you will continue your journey to the island of Taquile. This is Quechua, unlike the other Aymara speaking islands on the lake. It was part of the Inca empire and vestiges of this culture can still be seen in its constructions.


Once there you will be given a brief explanation of the island and witness a cultural activity. After lunch, you will return to the port of Puno, where our transport will be waiting to take you to your hotel.
