Lake Titicaca, Puno

4.4
#2 of 6 in Historic Sites in Puno
Take a tour of Lake Titicaca, the world-famous lake along the border of Peru and Bolivia. Consider renting a boat and hiring a guide to take you around. Not only will you explore along the water's edge and the local villages there, but you'll also visit the lake's floating reed islands, maintained and inhabited by locals. You can swim here, but expect cold waters in the highest navigable lake in the world.

  • An unforgettable experience sailing on Lake Titicaca visit the floating islands of the Uros and Taquile island in Puno to then navigate the Bolivian side and visit the island of the Sun. The landscapes, the blue of its waters is an experience that will remain in my memories. You must try the trout in Taquile is very good,

  • If you put Peru or Bolivia I recommend you pass by the Lake. You don't need more than one day. We arrived at 5 in the morning and we went to 7 o'clock. She is not going to find any problem with the trips, the people you approach one. Repay more than 100 Suns by person by views of the Uros + Taquile Island + boat and lunch included. The Lake is beautiful, looks like a sea

  • I thought I would feel intrusive, but they are all about hosting tourists. I paid slightly more for a faster boat, and thought it was worth it as we spent plenty of time on the boat already.  more »

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.
