The Uru are a pre-Columbian people who built settlements on floating islands in order to isolate themselves from potential aggressors. This archipelago of floating islands consists of approximately 40 individual islands made entirely of reeds. The Uru are extremely resourceful and fashion boats, houses, beds, watch towers and even medicine from the naturally abundant reeds. Upon visiting the islands you will receive a demonstration as to how the islands are made and maintained. For an additional 10 soles you can take a short boat ride on one of their handmade boats. A true highlight!
