The Uros Floating Islands: On the hearth of the National Reserve Of lake Titicaca , an extence area of reed banks , where you will observe artificial reed platforms inhabited by this ancient ethnic group. It is surely one of the most original ways of life on earth. Some people think them artificial and acting for tourists. But in fact they are authentic, their culture is authentic, and the history of why they live amongst the reeds is fascinating.
Taquile Island: A place where the time has stopped. There you will see an indigenous community that conserves original Inca social traditions and organizations.
