About the Islands:

The floating islands of the Uros people are Puno’s major tourist attraction.  These floating islands are the home
of the Uros tribe, one which dates back to pre-Incan civilizations. These islands are made from totora reeds
which grow at the bottom of the lake.  From these reeds, people build their homes and boats for transportation.
The origin of the islands is uncertain, many of the islanders still live using traditional customs, and fishing is the
main activity for them.
Amantaní is located at about 3 and 1/2 hours from Puno.  It is a fascinating community, made up with terraces
and ruins clinging to the island's two peaks, Pachatata (Father Earth) and Pachamama (Mother Earth).  It is
home to farmers, fishers, and weavers.  Its villages are composed of about 800 families. The island presents
some excellent opportunities for hikes up to these spots, with terrific views of the lake and the sparsely
populated island landscape.  The highlight of a visit to Amantaní is an overnight stay with a local family.  The
family will prepare your meals with products from the island. You will also be invited to a friendly dance in the
village meeting place. For the event, most families dress their guests up in local outfits (the women in layered,
multicolored, embroidered skirts and blouses, and the men in wool ponchos).
Taquile is Located on the Titicaca Lake at 35 km (22 miles) from Puno.  It possesses fertile lands on which
inhabit some 300 Quechua families that live keeping their ancestral customs. They are devoted to agriculture,
fishing and weaving. The landscapes include numerous pre-Inca and Inca ruins and terraces. The special and
beautiful clothes that the Taquile residents wear are product of their textile art. The manifestations of religious
and folkloric customs are very impressive in Taquile.
