Agreed with some of the others that say if you're short on time, nothing special. I hired a taxi/tour to take me, and I could have skipped it. But, if you have a free morning, it's a good way to kill time. Supposedly there is...More

The temple of fertility is very interesting and once beautiful is about 30 minutes you can go on your own because there are minibuses in the terminal of chucuito and the price is 1.50 soles, I have stayed half a day.

I visited Chucuito on a Monday. At the fertility temple my only company was two grazing alpacas and the phallic-like rocks protruding from the earth. My guide walked around with me in the small space. Not very exciting. I DID enjoy the scenic overlook near...More

This village is directly across the road from Taypikala Lago hotel. We were surprised to find an active town (it was a holiday), with several restaurants, visitors (mostly Peruvian), and an Inca fertility site. It's worth a visit if you're in the area.
