Islands made from local reeds, also all the buildings. Rather precarious way of life. Colourful clothing, friendly people. Well worth a visit.

It is great to support, see, and learn about the floating islands. I have always wanted to visit this lake and the islands. But, it is super oriented around tourism and buying either things or boat rides from the families. It felt pushed and not...More

How could you come to Lake Titticaca and not see the famous floating islands? Is it a big show? YES. But still, the family we visited seemed so genuine, friendly and eager to explain their heritage. We were enthralled. They sold us the tourist goods...More

The concept and history is really interesting! But once we were encouraged to try on clothing and they kept trying to persuade us to buy their goods, it seemed a little too touristy for me. And our guide told us we "had" to pay the...More

The women on the trip enjoyed this visit more than I did. Dressing up's not my thing anyway and certainly not in temperatures of 35 celsius plus. As always information on background and history are kept to a minimum with the sale of goods being...More

I found Uros Khantati through Lonely Planet and she did not disappoint. We stayed two nights there. The son picked us up at the bus station and took us to the islands, where we spent a very relaxing full day. My only recommendation would be...More

The trip to the islands is nice and in a confortable boat. The Unos islands and the way the occupants live and support their stay in the islands is also interesting to know. I had never seen something like this and it really challenges you...More

Very interesting to see but I think most of the items they sell are bought and then resold here. We saw all of the items for sale in other places throughout Peru.

Very touristy on one level but well worth a visit to see how they build the islands and live. Greatly enjoyed meeting the families and learning their story.

It's very interesting visiting people living on this floating island. You can hardly imagine their way of life. Must see.

Deb k is right. The best is to go in the evening, because there are less tourists. If you not go, it's kind of okay. ;)

There are lots of buses that run between Puno and La Paz so should be easy to sort once you are in Puno. Maybe just check with your hostel/hotel for recommendations. You have to get off the bus at the border, sort your... More
