Lacking the glorious lake views and cultural fanfare of Puno, Juliaca has assumed the role of a commercial travel conduit. What it lacks in cultural attractions, it makes up for in convenience. Despite its unattractive appearance, Juliaca has the closest airport to Lake Titicaca, and rail and highway connections to Puno,Cusco and Arequipa. The roads originating from Juliaca are also conducive to making the trek to Bolivia along the serpentine backroads winding their way along the northern and eastern shores of Lake Titicaca.


If you decide to spend the night here, the best hotels and services are located near Plaza Bolognesi, where you will also find the train station, most banks and Iglesia La Merced. A few blocks northwest is the colonial church, Iglesia Santa Catalina, on the city’s traditional Plaza de Armas. Several low hills provide viewpoints of the Meseta del Collao plateau stretching to Lago Titicaca’s waters.


Other places nearby Juliaca: Isla Taquile , Juli , Islas Anapia and Yuspique, Chucuito, Islas Uros, Isla Amantaní, Llachón, Lampa, Isla Suasi and Puno.
