It's a long boat ride and an awkward experience at times, but in the end it's totally worth it. Can't figure it out if the basic and shared sanitary utilities are left like that on purpose. Better facilities should be made available, no harm in...More

We did a home stay with a local family and it was a good experience. The Food was good and we watched beautiful sunset. Shame the night was so cold and we struggled a bit.

We have visited only for a day from Capachica, but I really wished we would have stayed at one of the homestays. The island is beautiful, with terraced hillsides, sheep, stunning views and great hiking opportunities. There are two peaks, Pachamama and Pachatata, with ancient...More

Because of the altitude and the dazzling sun everything is exceedingly bright so you need to be diligent about wearing sunglasses, hats and sunscreen. Taking photographs is also challenging due to the bright light. Amantani, a small island of 3 1/2 square miles, is located...More

Yes, though if you are on a homestay visit I would not assume that there will be electricity in the bedroom. The house we stayed in had some electricity but none in our room.
