Spectacular scenery, magnificent sunsets, colourful locals and vibrant festivals await you in the lesser known region of Puno in Peru. Home to the largest land-locked lake in the world Lake Titicaca, her stunning landscapes will leave you thirsty to learn more about the regions’ rich history. The city of Puno is the jumping-off point for any lake visit and despite its gritty appearance has a few charms of its own.

Check out our Puno & Lake Titicaca Travel Guide for our list of the top things to do  and our favourite hotels and restaurants.

TOP THINGS TO SEE AND DO IN PUNO & LAKE TITICACA

LAKE TITICACA

Lake Titicaca sits between Bolivia and Peru and is the highest navigable lake in the world. This still remains a more traditional part of Peru and has a fascinating cultural mix of local Aymara and Quechua communities. Stunning rural landscapes, golden lake sunsets and colourful traditions make this a must-see on a trip to Peru.

UROS FLOATING ISLANDS

Unlike anything you will have ever seen before these islands made of reeds from Lake Titicaca literally float 7km off the shore from the city of Puno. Be warned they are quite touristy but we still think it’s worth a visit to experience something completely unique…

TAQUILE ISLAND

Taquile is a tiny island in the middle of Lake Titicaca. Declared a UNESCO site of cultural heritage it’s easy to see why as soon as you step ashore and see how they have preserved their ancient traditions and culture. It’s well worth a visit and we recommend you stay at least a night to witness their stunning sunsets and fascinating local life.

VIRGEN DE CANDALARIA

The ‘Virgen de Candelaria’ is the patron saint of Puno and is highly revered by locals.  The famous Candelaria festival is one of Peru’s biggest festivals and is held every February in her honour. You can visit her oficial sanctuary at the San Juan Bautista Church in the heart of Puno.
