Taquile Island is situated in the Peruvian part of Lake Titicaca and can easily be visited from Puno. The island still maintains a fascinating indigenous culture and traditions and functions almost as a separate state within Peru. The islanders speak Quechua (unusual in a region where Aymara is the main native language); the island is noted for the very high quality of its unique weavings and textiles. Festivals are frequent and colourful affairs with traditional music and dances.
For more information on visiting Taquile Island and trip packages visit the Taquile Island Community Based Travel Agency website
. Owned and managed by the islanders rather than outsiders, its a great way to support this unique island community.
