Puerto Perez

Those looking for a quiet, relaxing getaway will enjoy the lakeside village of Puerto Perez, conveniently located about 70 kilometers (44.5 mi) outside of La Paz. Established by English settlers in the 1900s, the town originally served as a base for British rail workers, and was also the port for the first Lake Titicaca steamship.

Today, the area makes for a pleasant base from which to explore surrounding islands. Tours can be arranged through Balsa Tours (Tel: 2-244-0620 / 0817, Fax: 2-244-0310, E-mail: info”, URL:, an agency that also owns El Hotel Las Balsas (on the Plaza Principal), a comfortable lodging option with 18 rooms, a small cafe and restaurant, and a balcony with excellent views over the lake; be sure not to miss the exquisite sunsets this village is known for.
