Great views and provides a great sense of tranquility. Understand it is badly polluted but could not tell.

Hello there - I was wondering if anyone had any insight into a group tour vs. a private tour for one day on Lake Titicaca? For a group of 5 people what would be the approximate cost for each and how many people are usually on the group tours? Thank you!

Our group tour was all inclusive in our booking so I don't know what the actual cost was. Sorry I can't help. What ever you do it is well worth it.
We plan to arrive Juliaca around 1 pm on a Saturday, and leave by bus Monday morning for Cusco. Where to catch a Collectivo from airport to Puna? What's the cost and how long is the ride? I'd like to visit the quieter Isla Amantani but don't have time for a homestay. Can I just take the 8 am ferry from Puno and catch the 4 pm boat back? How long is the ferry ride each way or is there a fast boat option? If that's not feasible, what does a tour of Uros and Taquile via speedboat cost and how long does it last? Thanks!

A recent news article described lead, mercury, and trash in Lake Titicaca. Should we cancel that section of our planned trip to Peru? Thank you for your help.

I read the same article and was surprised. The tour guides explained how so many of the people living on the lake depend on it for their daily livelihoods and food. We went on to the floating islands where whole families... More
