Short description

First you will visit the floating islands of Uros with a guided tour of the islands and then you will continue by boat to the island of Taquile where the group will enjoy a 1 hour hike towards the main village. On the way the guide will explain about traditions and life on the island. Once in the main village you will be given free time to explore the local handicraft market. Taquile has approximately 1,200 inhabitants. The people from this island have a Quechua origin and they are mostly small farmers. However, since mid 70s they have also become well known for their firm entrepreneurial spirit.  Since the beginning of the tourism flow to the island some “Taquilenos” have been participating directly with the tourism activities. Some of them have organized themselves to provide tourism services such as home stays, restaurants and boat transportation.
