  • It is noteworthy that exist until today people who retain their customs and remain living on these islands of totora. It is one of the musts to visit Peru. Don't forget to take your Passport so you put unique stamp on this side of the world.

  • Ivan and his family you receive in your home and make the experience of Lake Titicaca and the customs of the Uros only. Kind attention, home-cooked meals, walks by the Lake, talks during the dinner... we ask for more! Unforgettable days...

  • Although this island is very touristy, you can imagine how life on these islands is.

  • 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.
  • Another universe

  • 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.
