Day 01: Puno Floating Island "Uros" "Taquile" Island Puno.

Early in the morning (7:00am) you will be picked up from your hotel, and then transferred to the harbour. We start off our boat excursion of Lake Titicaca by visiting The Uros Floating Islands, a small community that live on these interesting reed Islands. After, we continue our journey towards "Taquile Island" (2 hour aprox.), a traditional Quechua, Spanish speaking community, full of ancient agricultural terraces and some ruins dating back to the pre-Inca times. The most characteristic garments are the so-called "Chullo", a knitted hat with an earflap. When we reach the shores of Taquile Island, we have to walk up along a narrow path, enjoying on the way nice views of the Titicaca Lake.

At the top of the Island the guide will explain the culture of Taquile, then you will have free time to explore this place on your own and afterwards you will meet the group for lunch at one local restaurant.

After lunch, we will descent to the harbor to take our boat back to Puno. We will be back in Puno by 5:00 pm approximately
