Tourism in Puno

TOUR TO THE UROS - TAQUILE FLOATING ISLANDS ONE DAY

20 minutes from the city of Puno by boat. The inhabitants of these islands have organized themselves as the Uros-Chulluni Community and although they still hunt and fish, they manage tourist directed activities in their territory. Their livelihood is based on the benefits of a unique plant The Totora reed. They use it to build their homes, boats and even the floating islands they live on, periodically adding new layers of reeds. Totora reed is a source of food for man and animals, a refuge for their hunting quarry and a vital tool for everyday activity.

About 35 km ( 4 hours ) from the city of Puno by boat, this island is unique because They are farmers, fishermen and weavers.
