Tour Lake Titicaca aboard Yavari, a refurbished 19th-century ship. Originally built by the Thames Ironworks in England, the ship was transported to Titicaca by boat, rail, and then, finally, by mule. Today, the vessel serves visitors interested in touring the lake the old-fashioned way. Make your reservations well in advance, especially if you plan to sleep aboard the ship. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Puno trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

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.
