Taquile Island

 

This is a peaceful island on Lake Titicaca, situated some 35 Km (4 hours) east of the Puno harbor, by boat. There are no roads or electricity in Taquile, but there are plenty of hills and archaeological ruins. The most popular attractions in Taquile are its landscapes, dominated by tiered platforms where potatoes, corns, quinoa and broad beans are cultivated; ceremonial sites hosting rituals imploring for abundant harvest and fishing and the hospitality of its people, who are so outstandingly organized. The textile industry is the main activity on this island and the garments they manufacture relate to their daily chores. (PromPeru). Taquile Island has preserved its old charm by limiting the amount of tourism exposure
