Highlights
    What to Expect
    After hotel pick up in Puno, relax during a scenic drive parallel to the glittering Lake Titcaca. Climb aboard a small boat and set sail for the islands of Uros and Taquille, man-made structures made entirely of reeds. 

    Enjoy a warm greeting by the friendly locals, who show you round their rustic homes while your knowledgeable guide explains the fascinating history of the islands; originally built as a defense mechanism, the islands were designed with flexible reeds in order to move easily during attack. Learn about the logistical problems of the rotting reed foundations, then return to the boat for the next leg of your voyage. 

    Disembark at the island of Taquile, a place that has avoided the metropolitan development of the modern world; the women still wear traditional woven clothes and artisan treasures are created using ancient methods. Learn about the reversals in stereotypical gender roles and feast upon a light lunch inspired by regional recipes. 

    After your culturally enriching exploration, return to the mainland and venture back to your hotel in Puno.
