Lake Titicaca: Homestay on Lake Titicaca

Visit Us

Homestay on Lake Titicaca

Such is the vastness of Lake Titicaca that when staying on one of the islands scattered across its shimmering surface, you could easily imagine you were in the middle of the ocean. However it isn’t just the sublime setting that makes a homestay here so rewarding: isolation has preserved the timeless traditions of the lake’s small island communities, making them fascinating places to immerse yourself in local culture.

We can arrange homestays on a number of Lake Titicaca’s scenic isles and peninsulas, including little-known Luquina Chico where rural life remains little impacted by the modern world, and Taquile and Amantani with their unique island traditions. It is now even possible to spend the night on the man-made reed islands of Uros, floating adrift on the great lake.


What our experts say

After dinner Cristina and her husband Vincent came into the dining area to tell us all about how they started the business, first just hosting a couple of tourists in their house and then going on a course to learn how to cook meals which would appeal to visitors, culminating with her visit to Germany where she won a tourism award.  They also sung us Peruvian songs and made us sing songs from the UK  - we bullied two Scottish medical students who were also staying there into participating!
