Isla Taquili Travel Guide: 38 reviews and 106 photos


Taquile is like a bubble in time and space. Here you will find people with very antique and weird customs, in an island where there are no cars, no noises, just tracks, landscapes, and endless horizons all around...


The first thing that impressed me in Taquile was the magnificient views from the top of the island. You can see Bolivian mountains with snowy peaks in the distance, with all that quietness around... a really magical place....


Taquile island is located in the middle of Titicaca Lake, in the Peruvian side. You can get there by boat from Puno, in the Peruvian coast. There are daytrips, visiting also the Uros island. Boats take about 4 h.

    An extremely interesting page on this island of strange customs!! Quite an insightful observation about people living on an island yet they are not interested in the water! I like off-beat places like this. Thanks.
