Titicaca Tour: Uros & Taquile
This morning we will transfer you to the port of Puno city, where we will take a boat for a 30-40 minutes cruise to the floating islands called “Uros”, made entirely of reeds. The friendly Urus people will be happy to welcome you to their islands, and will share their history, culture and traditions with you. The community of the Uros has endured for hundreds of years, thanks to their continual renovation of the island floor with Totora reeds and mud and their harmonious relationship with nature. You will learn how Urus have completely built their floating houses. After exploring the islands we will embark in our boat for another 2 hours ride to “Taquile”, an old island completely terraced by the pre-Incas and Incas. Taquileños still live in a traditional way and are known for their high quality handicrafts. Here we will visit some of the native families and enjoy a traditional meal with them.
