Isla Taquili Travel Guide: 38 reviews and 106 photos

Simply an amazing place, one of my favourite place in Peru, Isla Taquile is such a quiet and nice place that, if it wasn’t for the bloody freezing cold that you get there, I could spend more than a week...just chill and chill and chill around...

People are simply amazing, and you have a lot of things to do...

Visit the “Cerro del Sol” and the “Cerro de La luna”, where you will get amazing sunsets and sunshines, is just a small part of the activity...

Talk with people that at 5 o’clok in the morning are already working in the grass is something simply unbelievable....

Take a breakfast with the family that guested us was great!!!

Puno is just few hours away with the boat, but is definitely another word...

Just Get here!!!!

As said before, the bloody cold is a point of disadvantage of this place...seriously..the freez wind is unbelievable! Take a pullover more with you once you are coming here....

..but clearly, a kid watch is something so simple and great!!!! Talking with this baby in spanish??!! Com’on....absolutely beautifull!

    I was at the Isle of Taquile when in Peru a few years ago. Visiting your pages is like being there again--without the splitting head ache from the altitude.
