For a truly authentic and deep cultural experience, stay overnight in a local home on Taquile or Amanti islands, where the local inhabitants have conditioned their homes to offer modest yet comfortable lodging. They have even expanded their rustic houses to include a simple dining area in which they serve hearty meals (lunch and dinner on first day, breakfast and lunch on second day) to their guests. Allow yourself to be welcomed warmly by this fascinating indigenous culture where their traditions, organization and identity are kept alive even today.
We loved the experiences that we had with the families in Taquille and Amantani! Thank you for the private bathroom - we appreciated it!

Our stay on Taquile Island was most worthwhile. We learned a lot about the culture of the indigenous people. The accommodations were modest but perfectly adequate rooms owned by an islander who also prepared a fine dinner and breakfast. We are very grateful to have stayed there overnight.
