    You'll need to know some language basics

    by GoogleGuru Written Dec 4, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On the island of Amantani, you'll need to know some basics of the Quechua language. While some residents speak a small amount of Spanish (usually the younger children), the majority of the people only speak Quechua.

    Bring Gifts

    by GoogleGuru Written Dec 4, 2004

    When visiting the Island of Amantani, even if you're not staying the night, it's a good idea to bring gifts of food to the island. There's a market right near the docks of Puno set up for this exact purpose.

    Fruit and vegetables are especially welcome

    (I wouldn't bring potatoes however)
