Stay with a family on Lake Titicaca

"An amazing experience due to the interaction it allowed with a lovely family, whose way of life is so alien to ours."

How to do it

The homestay is included as part of an excursion to Lake Titicaca, Peru. You leave Puno in the early morning, first visiting the Uros Islands before crossing the lake to Amantani. You are introduced to your hosts, a local family, and share a meal with them. The next morning, after a family breakfast, you depart for Taquile Island where you have lunch, before returning to your hotel in Puno.

When and where to go

The Amantani homestay is available all year.  The island is best visited when you are staying in Puno by the lake.
