Hard to believe that people live on floating islands on Lake Titicaca - each island is so small and can be occupied by 3-4 families. How do they manage that ? How do they not kill each other ?? How do the kids not drown ?? What do they live on ?? How does inter marriage not cause health issues ?? Why do the women wear so many skirts ?? What keeps the island afloat ?These are just some of the questions that will face you on a trip to one of the islands. Truly fascinating experience. Islanders do not get much state support and do rely on tourists buying their handiwork to support themselves so be prepared to buy something. For any of you thinking of living there - Make no mistake - this is a hard life !!

A visit to one or more of these floating islands can be very interesting or possibly somewhat depressing. Living is very primitive and residents rely heavily on visiting tourists to buy some of their handcrafts to help fight off poverty. The islands themselves are constructed from reeds that grow in Lake Titicaca's shallows and are anchored to the lake's bottom. The complex building process is described as part of the visit. The boats and small huts that are used by those living here are also made from the reeds as are some of the their household items and handcrafts. We found it to be a fascinating experience and did find a few nice items to purchase.

A few hours from Puno lake Titikaka has many island the most accessible the Uros is one of them. The Uros is a hand made island from bamboos like a floating island. There is 2 or 3 families leaving in the same island . There is a kitchen and sleeping houses. Even the boat is made from bamboos . The island has to be filled once a month. by the top to continue to float like a big water bed.
