Useful information

Anapia Island is far from the conventional way. The beauty of its landscapes and its remote location make this island a privileged place where only a few people arrive.

During this visit you can enjoy walks with the host family and share with them talks, ideas and impressions. Until now this slow and respectful cultural exchange has made the native people of Anapia understand the value of continuing to receive a non-massive tourism as well as the value of preserving their culture, their language and being proud of their indigenous origins. The visit of this community is complemented by sailboat rides and walks in the neighboring islands.

On Yuspique Island there are more than 60 vicuñas under the protection of the community. The vicuñas are the Andean camelids of very fine wool that live freely in the high Andean plains. These animals have been on the verge of extinction due to illegal hunting. In Yuspique you can walk around the island and capture images of the vicuñas and the snow-capped mountains of the Cordillera Real. This day a group of women from the community will prepare a typical outdoor lunch for the visitor. We use the sailboats of local fishermen to transport from one island to another. You will be amazed at the ability of women and children to navigate Lake Titicaca.
