Uros islands, home to the descendants of the pre-Inca Urus people, who continue to live on the floating islands, which are constructed by totoro reeds that grow around the lake.

Another beautiful destination. The island still bears vestiges of a pre-Incan past. The are Ayamara Indians. The intricate and brightly-colored textiles produced here reflect the inhabitants’ Andean beliefs, myths, and ways of life.
