  • It is the typical colonial Highlands, with beautiful gardens, beautiful Cathedral square and colourful buildings. Day Sunday is honors to the flag with a parade, that worth watching, since parade different communities with their costumes.

  • Pass by there the night and by the "Boardwalk" puno in Peru. Will notice an interesting city. Far beyond what is expected. Still more if it's in early August.

  • A simple main square which has as its background the Cathedral. The plaza can be your starting point for your tour in the historic center after your excursions in the surroundings

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.
