Ensuite nous avons repris le bateau pour rejoindre Taquile où une petite …

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.
