Day 02: Lake Titicaca; Uros Floating Island and Taquile.
Duration: 7 -8 hours aprox.
The full day tour to the Islands of Uros and Taquile will commence at 7:00 AM when you will be picked up from your hotel to embark on a memorable full-day boat travel on Lake Titicaca. The Uros are the natives who live on these man-made islands created from totora grown on Lake Titicaca. The natives knit the reeds together to form an organic mat in order to grow thicker reeds. The houses are built on top while the cooking is done outside the homes to avoid fires. After spending an hour at the Island of Uros, you will proceed to the Island of Taquile. Here you will notice that the locals speak Quechua instead of the predominant Aymara. The Island of Taquile was once a part of the Inca Empire and that influence can be seen in the buildings these people make. However, their present attire owes itself to Spanish rule where they were forced to wear peasant clothes. Once you arrive on the island, you will get some information about it briefly, along with a tour till it’s time for lunch. After lunch, the boat will take you back to your hotel. This is how Peru tours of Lake Titicaca end.
