Perhaps the most beautiful island on Lake Titicaca, Taquile Island affords fine views and the chance to observe its local inhabitants and fascinating customs. The Quechua-speaking men and women still wear traditional dress, colour-coded according to their marital status, and live by the strict code of 'ama sua, ama llulla, ama qhilla' - do not steal, do not lie, do not be idle.

You can also shop for some fine weavings, only available for purchase here. They are made by the island's men, who are the only ones permitted to knit and who can be seen doing so throughout Taquile.
