City of the Lake
Hugging the western tip of Lake Titicaca, Puno serves as a melting pot of indigenous and imported cultures, and makes a great base for explorations around the region. Home to around 150,000 people and sitting at a dizzying altitude of 3,830 m (12,556 ft) above sea level, the ramshackle city displays a combination of colonial architecture and run-down houses that astound most visitors on a Puno vacation. The city relies largely on agriculture, but also serves as a black-market smuggling hub between Peru and Bolivia. During your trip to Puno, you'll experience the rich traditions that have given the city its reputation as the "Folklore Capital of Peru." Discover how to plan a Peru trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.

Where to stay in Puno

Despite the appeal of Lake Titicaca, most accommodations in Puno sit several minutes back from the water, around the city center. Hostels, budget guesthouses, and rooms in private homes make up the majority of sleeping options, with a handful of boutique hotels also available. Consider staying somewhere with easy access to local transport, as you'll likely want to head off on daytrips to the surrounding area during your Puno holiday.
