Puno is located in the south of Peru on the shores of the magnificent Lake Titicaca at 3800 meters above sea level. Puno is the melting pot of the Inca and Aymara cultures. It is well known as the folkloric capital of Peru, which honors it with its large number and variety of traditional dances and music. The main attraction of Puno is the highest navigable lake in the world, Lake Titicaca, with the existing islands of Amantani and Taquile. UNESCO protects the islands because they are the only Quechua-speaking communities, and they follow the lifestyle of the Incas times.
Private Machu Picchu always tries to go with local communities to better understand the local people on the islands. In this opportunity, you will visit the floating islands of Uros and Taquile and then stay in a homestay with a local family.
