SOME TOURISTIC INFORMATION THAT CAN BE OF INTEREST

Puno is a city in southeastern Peru, located on the shore of Lake Titicaca. It is an important agricultural and livestock region. Much of the city economy relies on the black market, fueled by cheap goods smuggled in from Bolivia.
  • Uros Floating Islands: Founded by the Uros people hundreds of years ago, the islands have been artificially made from the native totora reed. The tours last about 3-4 hours and leave 3 times a day.
  • Amantani Island: Further away than the Uros Islands, Amantaní Island provides a fascinating and authentic insight into local indigenous culture. Tourists can choose to spend a night there thanks to community-run initiatives which will allow you stay in a family home.
  • Taquile Island: Another island well worthy of a visit is Taquile, typically included on an Amantaní tour. Located 25 kilometers from Puno, it is well-renowned for its fine textiles.
  • Sillustani: Back on the mainland, 34 kilometers away from Puno, Sillustani is a pre-Inca burial ground. Here, a series of funeral towers, known as chullpas, were built to house the deceased families of community nobles.
  • Restaurants: Enjoy the fresh fish from the Lake and Peruvian food from one of its many restaurants and cafes.
  • Accommodation: There are plenty of options in Puno to choose depending on your budget. You can also spend a night on Amantani Island in a family homestay.
