    Stayed here with a group tour and the staff was very accommodating as we had leave our big bags and allowed us to do so in the room. When we returned only a few of us had to change rooms. Beds are very comfy and warm, bathrooms clean and lots of hot water.

    Political slogans painted on houses are a common sight everywhere.

    Many villages had markets and it wasn’t uncommon to pass small trucks carrying people and animals in the back.

    Late arrival at Lake Titicacca due to the blockade. Raining cold dark and gloomy. Boat trip to Uros floating reed islands. Difficult to get decent photos. Disappointed. This was something I had really been looking forward ...

You are to bring three food items per person to the home stay in lieu of a tip. We purchased some powdered milk, jam, butter, cooking oil, pasta and rice. Candy for kids is not allowed as there is limited access to dental care. We were also instructed not to buy anything that is being sold by children in the side of the road, as it encourages the family to ...
