3 DAYS / 2 NIGHTS TAQUILE–LUQUINA-UROS SPEEDBOAT
Day 1: Transfer upon arrival from the bus/train station or hotel
Day 2: Hotel pickup approx. 7:00 a.m. We’ll embark in the port of Puno and navigate toward Taquile Island, spending about 2.5 hours on this natural island. Taquile Island was recognized by the flight search engine Skyscanner on a list of the most beautiful lakes in the world. Taquile Island, in the middle of Lake Titicaca, was listed as the island with the fourth most beautiful scenery in the world. On Taquile Island, we can observe the community of weavers, isolated from civilization, who conserve the thousand-year-old weaving tradition of the Incas (learn to weave with the natives of the Island, interpretion of the pre-Columbian writing system). UNESCO has declared it as a world intangible cultural heritage site. Then we’ll return along the traditional footpath. At noon, we’ll leave from the port of Taquile to head to the Chucuito Peninsula in the Aimara region that represents the identity of the Alitplano (High Plains) of Peru and Bolivia. We’ll have a buffet lunch of regional foods exclusively for our group in the Luquinia Chico community at “The Fisherman’s House.” In the afternoon, we’ll return to Puno, visiting the traditional Islands of the Uros along the way, where we can observe the ancient culture that maintains its customs and lifestyle based on woven mats of totora reed (a native plant that grows around the lake). This tour will let us see many other new tourist attractions, exclusively on the traditional islands where we encounter a minimum number of visitors in order to ensure our clients’ satisfaction.
