Uros Floating Islands, Puno

3.8
To witness an entire community living on islets of totora reeds, head to Uros Floating Islands. Floating atop Lake Titicaca, the 42 floating islands are home to the Uros people, who continue to live a traditional lifestyle based on fishing and bird hunting. The arrival of tourism has affected the Uros way of life, with many locals now selling handicrafts to visitors as a means of making money. Appreciate the incredible ingenuity of the locals, but don't be surprised if your visit seems less "genuine" than you expected.

  • People say that the islands are touristy, and they are, but still not to be missed. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the islands. It's interesting learning and seeing how they build and maintain them. The people were super nice and friendly. Definitely worth the visit.
  • Amazing place to visit. You will learn their native skills and experience with the island. Buy their products and enjoy a lovely ride.
