Titicaca is considered the highest lake in the world that can be sailed. It has witnessed many civilizations, from the aymaras to the Incas. It is located in between Peru and Bolivia and has some interesting islands to visit.

The most touristic places around the lake are:
PERUVIAN SIDE: Puno, Uros island and Amantani and Taquile islands.
BOLIVIAN SIDE: Copacabana and Sun island.

To visit the Peruvian side you may go to PUNO and from there take boats or daytrips to Uros and Taquile. You can sleep in Taquile island, with locals, at their homes.

To visit the Bolivian side, go to COPACABANA and there you can take a ferry to "Isla del Sol". There are hostels there to spend the night and restaurants.

    My guide leader made it very clear exactly how much we'd have to pay for the boat trip. It was a little touristy, but still fun. None of us felt that we'd been cheated or taken advantage of.

    It's funny how basic the living is here and yet they have solar panels for TV!! What would they do without totora? Sounds like it is the basis for everything!
