Pick up at your accommodation......
21:30pm We pick you up in your Hotel/homestay and take you to the bus station where you will take the sleeper bus, which leaves at 10:15pm to Puno (6hours).
Day 1: Puno - Uros - Taquile Island:
Upon arrival, you will be picked up and transferred to a hostel where you will have time to rest in the lobby (approx.1-2 hours) before beginning your trip. During this time we recommend you eat breakfast (not included). In the morning we will pick you up at approx. 06:45am at the hostel in Puno and we will go to the port where we will begin our motorboat excursion on the waters of Lake Titicaca. The boat excursion of Lake Titicaca begins by visiting The Uros Floating Islands, a small community that has lived on these reed islands for decades. Centuries ago the small indigenous Uros tribe conceived of the islands as a way to isolate and protect them from rival tribes, the Collas and the Incas. The Uros people harvested the reeds in the shallows of the lake, bundled them together tightly and built floating island platforms complete with reed houses and canoes, creating in this way their own little world. After the tour of this island we will continue towards Taquile Island where we will walk for approx. 30-40 minutes until we arrive to the town where we'll visit different traditional sites there. Here we will also have our lunch. Later in the afternoon we will return to Puno at approx. 4:30PM. This ends your tour. At this time you can explore Puno on your own and have dinner before arranging your own transportation to the bus station. (This is very easy to do by taxi). The bus back to Cusco is at 22:00pm.
