Taquile Island Tour & Uros (by speedboat)

Price from: $ 95.00 USD

Lake Titicaca is one of the highest navigable lakes. People from the Aymara Inca culture decided to take possession thousands of years ago until today; they preserve their culture through dances.

Looking for a place to live, the islanders of the Uros decided to build their land thousands of years ago, who created the floating island of totora. This Uros & Taquile Island tour is an adventure in one of the highest lakes on the planet called TITICACA. We always wonder when we visit Machu Picchu, where the Inca culture will have begun, and the answer is on the islands of Lake Titicaca. We have indigenous cultures wherein Taquile men are textile weavers, and in the Uros, they are self-sufficient with their ancestral knowledge of survival.
