Fishermen and hunters inhabit the floating islands of Uros. The residents of the Uros use the totora reed (aquatic plant) that grows in the lake, to create life conditions and ensure that the islands stay afloat. The dense roots that generate these plants support the island. The Uros use the totora reed to build their islands, houses, for cooking, eating, and to sale in the city of Puno, besides to barter (exchange) with products such as quinoa, potatoes, barley and wool. This culture appeared over 3000 years ago and the people have spoken as a language Uro puquina, the last person who still spoke the Uru Puquina language died in 1951, now a day the population speak Aimara Language. On Uros live more than 2000 people, divided into 80 artificial islands built with totora reeds, where reed boats (balsa) are the unique method of transportation which is also used for fishing. Then a trip to the peninsula Luquina. Upon arrival to Luquina community the families will wait you and escort for your home stay as a warm welcome.
