Authentic Uros Floating Islands Tour

If you are concerned about the supposedly fake and awful tourist Uros prison Islands on internet, so we invite you to join us to this incomparable experience that will leave you with a new perspective and genuine way to know the Uros ethnic.

How would it be?

We'll visit the Southern Uros area, less commercial, no crowded, almost no tourist at the place with magnificent Titicaca scenery and local birds. No one will force you to buy their handicraft  or souvenirs because instead we'll do local activities.

What we propose is to be part of the process of getting the reeds and muds for building the reed islands.
