  • North Village or South Village ? Where to sleep ?

    by eternalvoyageur Updated Jan 26, 2011

    Favorite thing: South Village:
    Pros: amazing views, lots of hotels & restaurants. You get to see the sunrise AND the sunset.
    Cons: you need to climp up the stairs first (but you get to drink from the fountain of youth on the way). No running water in the hotels. No interesting sights nearby.

    North Village:
    Pros: Lake beach with pretty waves. Hippies. Running water. The Inca ruins are nearer.
    Cons: no spectacular views of sunrise and sunset.

    You can walk between the two villages (3 hours, with some spectacular views & Inca ruins on the way), or take the boat.

    Yumani

    by SirRichard Written Jun 16, 2005
    Yumani in the dusk

    Favorite thing: Yumani is the south village of the island. In the north there is another village called Challapampa. The boat stops at both. Most people disembark in the north, visit the ruins, then go hiking to the south, sleep there and take the morning boat back.

    Fondest memory: There is really not much to do/see in Yumani, just a few restaurants and hostels...
