    I really liked the visit to the floating islands, see how they're built is something that I could not have imagined.

    The way of life of these Indian, Uros. The boat ride is one of the coolest things of Peru!

    Hosted was quite close to the place, it is a small park with benches and typical of the area, there is all around and some movement when it is the output of the school that is in the same Park

    We stayed one night. Overall, it's a great tour to experience traditional Uros life closely with the real Uros people. But, they should've set the expectation right. We received an email with action packed plans and we were excited, but that was our mistake. We were supposed to be picked up at 10am but Frank showed up around 10:20am (unfortunately, being late seems to be an epidemic problem in Puno. I highly recommend to stay at Bolivia side of Lake Titikaka rather than Puno). He wasn't receiving any call and responding any texts. He didn't even say sorry. Then, we couldn't see the main guide Luis until 7pm that day. We were just staying at small island. It was a good time to catch up my readings but clearly this is not good tourism practice. Around 7pm Luis showed and again he didn't say sorry. I was expecting an English speaking guide, but he barely speaks English. He speaks some, but most of them seem to be what he momorizes. He couldn't understand even very basic English sentences. Don't get me wrong, he and his wife are very nice people. This trip itself is very good. I'm mostly complaining about setting a right expectation. If a guide's English is not good then it should be better to say so honestly on the website.

    Must see, but it gets boring after 10 minutes.

    Nice ride but if insist you to the Crown want to buy products or make payments up to things that should be free.

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.
