Overview

Depart from Puno and head out across Lake Titicaca toward Uros, a group of man-made floating islands constructed entirely out of reeds.
The friendly Uru people are happy to welcome you to their islands, and will share with you their history, culture and traditions.

Take a boat out to the islands and learn how the Uru built their floating homes entirely out of totora reeds and rope. The islands initially acted as a defensive mechanism, and were easily moved in case a threat arose. The bottoms of the islands rot away fairly quickly, so reeds are being constantly added on top, allowing each island to last for years.

Then, travel on to Taquile, an island untouched by the mainland's modernity. The local inhabitants, known as Taquileños, still wear traditional clothing and are known for their high-quality handicrafts. While the women make yarn and weave, knitting is actually done exclusively by men. Enjoy a small lunch on Taquile before heading back to your Puno hotel.
