Directions to Puno: Titicaca islands
Lake Titicaca is one of the most important natural heritage sites in the world, as well as a great source of resources for the communities that live around its blue waters, maintaining ancestral traditions and customs. The island of Taquile has pre-Inca terraces and ceremonial sites. Its inhabitants are experts in the art of traditional textiles, which has been recognized by UNESCO since 2005 as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
On the island of Amantani, members of the community demonstrate to visitors their agricultural work, textiles, stone carvings and furs.
Covering 43 hectares (106 acres), Suasi island is a unique example of a lake-side habitat. It is just 1 km (0.6 mile) from the shore. In this place ecosystem protection is encouraged, with man and nature coexisting in harmony. The archipelago of Wiñaymarca is made up of 8 islands, one of which, Anapia, offers visitors the experience of a home stay in a rural area, sharing cultural experiences with the people who live there.
By Lake Titicaca, near the floating islands of los Uros and a range of high altitude mountains, is the Puno’s most exclusive five-star hotel. The stunning panoramic view from the suites and terraces is a privilege for its exclusive guests.
Rooms overlooking the lake, bed linen boasting beautiful colors, local designs and a personalized service, all ensure total satisfaction with your stay. While you explore the spacious gardens and recreation areas, the company of the alpacas gives a touch of the local flavor to your stay.
Its grounds feature a restaurant specializing in local and international cuisine, including dishes created with fish caught in the lake, with live local music to top it all off. A gym, sauna and hot tubs, all add to the special attention which even includes transfers in top-of-the-line private cars, champagne and a tourist guide.
