    Walking

    Having no roads, no cars, walking is the only way to move around. Well, in fact climbing, hiking, as there are many slopes and hills in the island, no flat tracks, though is not hard to wander around.
    All the items imported from the mainland (nearly 70%) come by boat. Women are in charge of the transport on their backs upstairs to the village, and is a hard stairway, more than 200 steps!!

    Boat trips from Puno

    by SirRichard Written Jun 7, 2005

    I visited Isla Taquile in a daytrip from Puno. You can book those trips everywhere in Puno, in any agency, they are basically the same. It costed me 30 soles (about 10 USD), including a visit to Uros islands, boat to Taquile and lunch.
    You can also take a local ferry that is even cheaper, but in that case you can't return on the same day, you have to sleep there and return the next day.

    We got to Isla Taquile from Puno in a three hours trip with the sheep you see on the side in the picture...

    The boat can be taken in Puno harbor very easily, so no worries, and no need at all to get in an agency!!!

    Just walk to the harbor the afternoon before and bargain the price!!
