Uros Island Tour

Uros islands lake Titicaca is fascinating how groups of inhabitants decided to inhabit and create their own spaces to live to preserve their knowledge and culture since the Inca era. When stepping on the island, it is like stepping on a mattress full of water. Each step we take reminds us of the ingenuity of the Inca descendants and their knowledge of the adaptations to Mother Nature. Take a ride in one of the Viking boats; excuse me, Inca boats.
