Lake Titicaca Hotels
Puno is the main city on the shores of Lake Titicaca and has a reasonable choice of hotels available. Most of the higher end Peruvian brands have a property in Puno as well as several interesting local establishments. The higher end hotels are in general located at the shores of Lake Titicaca and other properties in the city center around the two main squares in town. There is also a handful of smaller properties that are located outside of town and even on some of the islands in the middle of the lake. The lakeside properties obviously have the best views and outdoor facilities to enjoy the lake. The hotels in town on the other hand have easy access to a very authentic highland city that is quite interesting to explore. From the center of town it is about 10 to 15 minutes’ walk to the pier and the lake. For hotels in Puno, apart from usual amenities, we look for hotels in the quieter parts of town and for the lakeside properties hotels with good restaurants as these have less access to the town of Puno. Another important feature is the heating. As the lake and its surroundings can become quite cold at night (you are at 3,800m (12,500ft) above sea level after all), good heating and isolation is important for a good night’s rest.
