First, we visit The Uros Floating Islands, a small community that lives on these reed Islands for decades.
Long ago the Uros tribe conceived on the islands as a way to isolate and protect themselves from rival tribes.
The Uros people built floating platforms, made reed houses and canoes, creating their little world.
During our visit, we will learn about their lifestyle, traditions, as well as their beliefs.

Along the way, we will enjoy stunning landscapes, including the Bolivian mountain range.
As soon as we get to the top, our local guide will explain about traditional life on Taquile.

Moreover, the iconography of their textiles reflects their way of life, nature, as well as their beliefs.
Among their garments, stands out the Calendar Waistbands, which depicts the annual cycles connected to agricultural activities.
Later on, you will have free time to walk around, and by noon we meet up for lunch at one local restaurant.
