Enjoy staying with a family on Amantani Island.
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."
An enjoyable experience for all
This homestay scheme has been a really great success story for the local community as it brings in an income to people who struggle to otherwise bring in funds without leaving their homes. Everyone involved takes turns in hosting guests, so it’s kept fair.
Importantly though, it is also a success for visitors too. Of course, some families are more chatty than others, but you should find that your host is very welcoming and will make your stay as good as possible. It is often a highlight for many of our clients.
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.
