After breakfast we will head towards taquile island by boat, where we will walk for about an hour, seeing the island and appreciating their famous textiles and typical clothes. finally we will return the city of puno arriving at approximately 5:30 pm. then you will be transferred to your hotel.
- Taquile island is from 3800 to 4000 meters high, to arrive at the top, you will walk on a sloping path (there aren’t many steps). the guide will adapt his walking rhythm to that of the clients and so you can walk as slow as you need to.
- If normally you are not used to eating local meal please buy in puno city, fruits or sandwiches to eat.
- It rains in the afternoons between the months of december until march, and so it is important to bring a waterproof jacket for the rain.
- Edwin who is in the responsable of the circuits in Pablo tour, after visiting Titicaca lake over 200 times as a tour guide for European travel agencies, Hi think traveling in large groups has more disadvantages than advantages:
1.-Most local tour operators in Puno to complete the number of people in the boat join or pool their clients from different travel agencies therefore is not a personalized tour.
2.-On arrival in the different islands of Amantani or Taquile have to walk between 3800 and 4000 meters high, is clear that this trek uphill does not take more than an hour and a half. The act of walking in large groups makes people lose the explanation is that the guide does. In large groups visitors can`t walk at your own pace.
3.-If you try to go faster so you will hear all the explanations after easier you will have height problems, such as headache, vomiting, shortness of breath ....
4.-boat sometimes used by large groups suffers from overload and thus causing a problem in the engine power capacity and finally is spoiled.
5.-with a boatload is difficult to make good photos during the boat ride.
6.- If you want to stay a little longer at a certain place they liked and thus enjoy the beautiful view, you can´t do it because you must follow the majority of the group between 25-30 tourists.
