“I spent a very pleasant day investigating Luquina Chico which is a small community on the northern coast of Chucuito, the southern peninsular which forms the “gateway” to the Lake from Puno.
By express launch 45mins. By slow launch 2hrs. from Puno.
The community offers full board and lodge with families. The programme is an initiative to promote rural tourism and although the homes are modest, they provide hot water and all meals. The location and views of Lake Titicaca are beautiful and the people, like Sra Flor de Maria, pictured, very hospitable. As yet, this community, of fishermen and smallholders is not “touristy” nor do they have wifi so best to contact via Manuel Quispe: email. firstname.lastname@example.org”
