Chucuito is a city on the western shore of Lake Titicaca south of Puno.

Get in[edit]

Buses and vans on the main road between Puno and the Bolivian border can be hailed any time. For a more comfortable seat, vans to Puno depart from the main square as soon as they fill up, 1 Sol.

Get around[edit]


  • Visit the Inca site first (also referred to as a Temple of Fertility). It may look more like a model mushroom farm, but they will hand you a decent map of the town and its attractions. Entry 5 Soles.
  • Walk some 2-300 metres uphill from the main square and cross under the power lines. Here you have a nice view of the town, the lake and the surroundings. Look further up; there is a big white cross on the cliff somewhat to the left. That's where the real views are!




Plenty of eateries, particularly close to the main square. Set lunches and lake fish specialties.



A good handful of simple hostals around.

Titilaka is a high End hotel of modern architecture on the shores of Lake Titicaca at the Chuquito Peninsula, perfectly mingling with the landscape, featuring two types of lake-view Suites "dusk"&"dawn".
