About Islas Taquile and Amantani
Located around 30km from Puno across Lake Tititcaca, the genuine islands of Taquile and Amantani offer a glimpse into a traditional Andean way of life that almost looks as though it was brought to a half over a century ago. Untouched by the modernity of the mainland, the local inhabitants of these islands still wear traditional clothing and maintain the laws, customs and traditions of old - their language is predominantly Quechua and both islands have maintained some degree of cultural isolation with a community-controlled model of tourism providing home stays, local guides and cultural activities. Although it is possible to visit the islands on a day trip from Puno, a home stay with a local family is the best way to experience the islands with meals cooked by the woman of the house and the night spent in their home.Read More
