  • This museum is not big but in their two-story focuses a range of photographs of Don Carlos Dreyer as a pioneer helping and preparing to indigenous people as also oil of history paintings without forgetting huacos, garments, accessories, valuable utensils, etc. With only five Suns to enter, go to the Museum!

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.
