Lake Titicaca Hotel map and travel info
Lake Titicaca is the natural border between Peru and Bolivia. If it’s glorious isolation you’re looking for, you’ve found it here.
- Inca Manco Cápac International Airport, in Juliaca is the only airport in the region. It is 30 miles from Puno, the largest town by Lake Titicaca. Several airlines, including Lan (www.lan.com), Iberia (www.iberia.com) and Taca (www.taca.com) operate flights to and from Peruvian cities, including Lima (four times a day), Arequipa and Cusco (both twice a day).
- Boat is the most common form of transportation around the lake. Locals operate every type of craft, from canoes and rafts to speedboats and glass-bottomed vessels.
- PeruRail (www.perurail.com) runs a sublimely scenic route through the Andes to Puno from Cusco a few times a week.
- Driving around Lake Titicaca can be stressful at night, when roads are not well lit. If you do drive, most hotels offer free parking. There is a direct highway linking Puno with Bolivia’s Copacabana.
