Why we like it
Aside from the astounding Latin American vistas, we love the breadth of incredible experiences offered here. Notably, we love visiting the lake’s islands and learning about their age-old heritage, from the stone structures on Amantani and the villages on Taquile to the birthplace of the Inca Empire on the ‘Island of the Sun’. Additionally, time your stay right for a true taste of tradition as you head to Puno for its local festival, where you’ll see a vibrant stream of colorful dancing, embellished with extravagant dress and fascinating rituals.
