This island is a small high-altitude lake paradise. With the sun gleaming off the lake below and Bolivian mountain range in the background, I could have easily "gone savage" and lived here with the locals for a year or two. The island is very hilly, so I ended up doing a fair bit of relaxed hiking around the island that left me feeling very satisfied with my day. The people of the island are very laid back and very pleasant to be around - not once was I harassed by touts during my visit (which can be a welcome change when traveling in Peru).

My youngest son and I spent a day on Lake Titticaca and Ilsa Taquile. We were both delighted with the beauty of the island and the friendly Peruvian people. We were fortunate enough to visit during a festival and found it great fun. I think it would be nice to spend a a couple of days on the island. Good Journeys!
