"visit the floating islands on..." Peru Favorite Tip by Maai

Peru General: 206 reviews and 170 photos


Favorite thing: visit the floating islands on the lake Titicaca. I travelled around with Cosi-travel and we had a great time.

Then we went to Amantani, where we stayed with a family for one afternoon and night. The girl was making traditional food for us, the views were wonderfull and we saw a sunset on the island, near the tempel of Pacha Tata.
There were no cars, no light at night but awfully lot of stars, great views, tranquility.

The following day we visited Taquile, the second island of the lake. this is smaller than Amantani, the village is on top of the island. Again magical views over the lake, no cars, ... great.

Fondest memory: I still say 'gracias' whenever I recieve something. I like the spanish language and the peruvian people are o so nice and friendly!
