PUNO 1 DAY
Taquile Island, Full Day
Taquile Island is a fascinating island on the lake. It is 45km from Puno. It is about seven km long and one km wide and has several hills with Inca terracing. The scenery of the islands is beautiful.
The soil is a deep earthy red color which in the strong highland sunlight, contrasts magnificently against the intense blue of the lake.
The backdrop of the snow-capped Cordillera Real Mountains on the far side completes a splendid picture.
The people wear colorful traditional clothes which they make themselves. The language spoken is Quechua rather than the Aymaras, the language of most Titicaca Indians. The people maintain a strong air of group individuality and don't often marry with non-Taquile people.
We highly recommend spending one night in the island. A day tour is not recommended if you want to see the complete island.
Early in the morning our guide will take you from your hotel, to go to the Puno port, there we will take the motorboat (2 hour trip) to go to Taquile island (We can also visit Uros in the way), our guide will tell you everything about these places including the history and traditions of their inhabitants. In the afternoon we return to Puno.
