Guided tours are the best way to see this remote and friendly island where the cows and sheep seem to outnumber people. Two mountain peaks, known as Father Earth and Mother Earth, make for superb hiking.

Beautiful isolated island with no cars, no trains etc. - only donkeys. We stayed with local family for one night, could experience a sample of their simple life. The view on the lake is breath-taking, incredible shades of blue.

We stayed with a wonderful host family for one evening. The food was delicious, the small street stalls in the small plaza has the best alpaca skewers! There's no roads, no cars and no dogs so it's one of the most breathtakingly relaxing places we've...More

Came here after Taquile to stay overnight in a Hospedaje. Amantaní is closer to the mainland than Taquile and as a result has lost much of the traditional ways of life. The clothing is more western, there are a few motorbikes and so on. The...More

The most unusual night of our trip was a home stay on Amantani Island. Despite my very few words of Spanish and the family having little English, we managed a conversation over a home-cooked dinner before bedding down for the night. This trip involved steep...More

Amantani was the second destination of our two-day, three stop tour, and the place where we spent the afternoon and night. In a way, it felt like stepping back in time, as conditions were very basic, cars were nonexistent, and people lived without so many...More

We were not sure whether we should do this experience - we were traveling with a young child and the reviews were so mixed. We ended up deciding to try this once in a lifetime experience and booked through the highly recommended All Ways Travel....More

Apparently other peoples' ideas of remote are "no cell phone service" and "only one outlet for three guests." If you said "Hey that's me," go have an adventure along with every single other tourist in Puno that seemed to be there. Don't buy online though-...More
