SUASI ISLAND ↔ UROS ↔ TAQUILE (3 DAYS – 2 NIGHTS)

LAKE TITICACA’S JEWEL

OVERVIEW

Suasi is a secluded island located off-the-beaten path in the northeastern section of Lake Titicaca. On its private 43-hectare this island features one of the most beautiful eco-lodge in Peru.

We like to say that Suasi is not just a “lodge”, Suasi is more a big countryside home built by local Aymara workers and with local materials such as wood, stones and totora reed. The property runs mostly on solar energy. Suasi is a genuine home for nature lovers where the magnificence of Lake Titicaca can be captured from every corner of the island.

Perfect for the soul, Suasi brings an overwhelming sense of tranquility, relaxation and peace. Indeed, Suasi Island is the perfect place to relax, to find your self, and to reflect on all the adventures and experiences that will make your journey through Peru unforgettable.

For the most discerning travelers Suasi offers the Andean Cottage, a private villa nesting on a small sandy beach.

LOCATION AND ACCESS

Isla Suasi is 250 km from Juliaca Airport. The property can be accessed by boat or car.

  • By boat: The departing port is the harbour of Puno. Suasi’s boat leaves only once a day at 7:30a.m. The boat trip includes a guided tour to Uros and Taquile islands. The duration of this trip is approximately 4.5 hours.
