It's fascinating to see how these floating islands are built and maintained, and how the local families have developed and maintained their culture over the years. Unfortunately, it was quite clear to us that a lot of these islands only survive because of the 'tourist'...More

It's a nice experience to walk on the floating islands and get to know how they are made, but the people wanting to sell you something are a little bit annoying. Also the ride in their typical boat is too expensive and not worth it.

We visited the Uros community and found it very interesting. The way the floating island is built and how this culture was born and their habits. Nonetheless we couldn't help thinking about their partial loss of identity owing to the tourism.

It was not only impressive, it was magical. Staying on the islands was the best decision for Puno, as it couldn't have been better. Considering the love and openess of Jorge and Magalie, welcoming us to their home and to see how they actually live...More

In mid April, skies were blue and the lake was nice and calm. The Uros Islands is the most unique arrangement you'll ever see. The women control their own island and the resource development on their islands. That's female empowerment. The location is remote, so...More

Lets admit this straight away, this is a tourist trap where you will be pressured to buy items from the locals. However, it was an amazing experience, the islands truly are floating and the locals do live on the islands. We were lucky to be...More

These floating islands are a short boat ride from Puno township. We visited as part of a tour that went here and to Taquile Island. I don’t recommend taking a tour that only goes to the Uros islands. Arriving into the floating islands you’ll quickly...More

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

Deb k is right. The best is to go in the evening, because there are less tourists. If you not go, it's kind of okay. ;)
