Also you can take a ride on the famous totora reed rafts to go from one to another island. The ride is optional and you must coordinate it with the guide.

The Uros are descendants of an ancestral culture who have always lived by fishing, hunting, exchanging products with people from around the peninsula and now tourism.

After we will go to Luquina, the trip will last approximately one hour and twenty minutes, upon arrival we will be welcomed by our family who will provide us with lodging and meals during our stay. We will participate in a cultural demonstration by the residents of the area. Then we will climb the hill to try to get as close as possible to heaven to do the “Pago a la Tierra” ritual. The moon splendor is reflecting majestically on the Titicaca Lake. In that moment the villagers pray devoutly generating a mystical environment and we are allowed to ask for our three wishes. Finishing the ritual we will return to our family home for dinner. Communication can be a bit difficult since people speak predominantly Aymara but the warm treatment they give us makes the communication flow. After dinner the community will invite us to participate in a musical demonstration where we can enjoy Andean music and community dance.
