  1. A grittier look at the reality of Peruvian tourism. I still want to see Peru but might want to pass on some of the oil-slicked parts.

    1. Hi Steve,

      Yes, there’s a lot of strange stuff in Peru, and a lot of it comes down to tourism supporting something that is no longer possible or desired (like living on floating islands with no healthcare or education) or the need to commercialise experiences twisting the original attraction of a place.

      I read one report that said these islands were better off sinking (due to the false nature of the current situation). I’m not sure that the author was right, but it’s more like visiting an open-air museum with dress-up actors than visiting a remote people-group.

  2. The experience at the Uros Island was really inexpressible!!! They way of living and the warm attitude they have with the visitors is beautiful. I had the luck to host at one of the Titicaca’s Islands too , at the Hotel Libertador Lake Titicaca… a luxurious hotel that offers first class services, I had the opportunity to taste some novo-Andean food, it was a delight for the palate.
