"Acora Market" Puno Off The Beaten Path Tip by JessieLang

Puno Off The Beaten Path: 9 reviews and 15 photos

 
 

Acora has a big Sunday market, and the local people may travel 3-4 hours to reach it. The Uros people are here selling fish, and there are trucks from the Amazon loaded with fruit.
This isn't a souvenir market--it is for people in the region to buy or barter for the things they use. It is large and colorful, and gives a picture of daily life.

Acora is about 20 mi. (35 km) from Puno, on the other side of Chucuito.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
