Puno, Peru- Bienvenidos A Las Islas Flotantes
This charming island is situated on the Titicaca lake. The island is located 24 kilometers (15 miles) from Puno. Its inhabitants are decked out in their traditional flamboyant outfits -on sale locally- speaking Quechua and maintaining a strong sense of loyalty within the group. The Incan terraces and ruins are scattered throughout the landscape. The island is void of hotels, electricity, roads, vehicles, and dogs. The local inhabitants offer accommodations and the modest restaurants serve what they have; fresh trout and boiled potatoes. The boats set sail daily from the Puno Pier and reach the island four hours later.
