Lake Titicaca is a beautiful area with lodging options as varied as the views. The larger cities, Puno and Juliaca, have all classes of hostels and hotels. In smaller towns, cheap, friendly hospedajes are the norm. Some of the villages, thoughâ€”like Chucuitoâ€”provide some relaxing, mid-range lodges.
On Uros, Taquile, AmantanÃ and Anapia islands, travelers stay with local families. These homestays allow guests to learn up-close what the daily life and traditions of these indigenous islanders are like. Isla Sausi is an exception; on this private isle, tourists stay in an exclusive, luxury eco-lodge with spa facilities.
Campers have few places where they may pitch their tents. If camping, be sure to have a wind-resistant tent, insulation pad and good sleeping bag.
