Lake Titicaca, Puno

4.4
#1 of 14 in Sightseeing in Puno
Lighthouse Island
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. Plan to see Lake Titicaca and other attractions that appeal to you using our Puno vacation planner.

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.
