Your excursion to Lake Titicaca will be incomplete if you don’t explore this beautifully sunny island. Whether by boat, on a hiking expedition, or walking down trails that date back to the Inca period, imagine the grand scale of the Inca Empire as you explore pre-Columbian ruins. The islanders mainly live around the northern end near Cha’llapampa and the southern town of Yumani. When you travel by boat, the island ports to look out for will be those at Pilko Kaina in Yumani and near the archeological ruins at Cha’llapampa. If there’s a bird lover lurking within you, the docks near the ancient Inca ruins offer rare sightings of endangered, flightless water birds and various other wetland birds native to the Altiplano. The sun, the boat rides, the leisurely hikes, ancient ruins, and spectacular natural beauty is what Isla del Sol is all about.
