Uros and Taquile Islands Tour Description:
It’s the main city to access Lake Titicaca – one of the World’s largest lakes. It is a destination not only for tourists but also for lake dwellers here to market their wares and shop for necessities. Puno does, however, have its understated charms, and is a convenient base for exploring Titicaca’s amazing islands, pre-Columbian ruins, and other attractions.
