We were visiting as part of a day tour and it was interesting to visit, but I found it a little odd. I have doubts about the authenticity of it, as I suspect they spend some time on the neighbouring ‘non-floating’ islands, but maybe they...More

The boats are mostly leaving in the morning, I guess spending a night in Puno instead is the option.
