Private Excursions at Titilaka
When Titilaka first opened in 2008, it immediately provided visitors to Lake Titicaca with a more authentic and immersive way to experience the second most visited site in Peru. Rather than joining the masses in Puno on contrived and cheaply operated boat trips to the Uros Islands, Titilaka's location gives guests direct exposure to the surrounding local communities and by proxy, keener insight into their culture and traditions which date back thousands of years.
But Ignacio Masias, owner of Titilaka, and his team don't like to rest on their laurels. They are constantly inventing experiences that are unique, tasteful, have a positive impact on the local community and allow guests a high degree of personalization and flexibility. A few years ago they debuted the Titilaka Boathouse, home to a fleet of kayaks, canoes, paddle boards and sunfish sailboats that guests can use to explore the lake at their leisure. More recently they worked with a few families on Taquile Island to develop an elevated lunch experience on the popular "Islands of Lake Titicaca" day tour that was a better complement to the dining guests experience at Titilaka. And in 2018, Titilaka debuted "private excursions", giving guests the ultimate ability to design their Lake Titicaca experience with their own private guide.
