The in famous fishing fleets and other attractions of
a little known village on the shores of Lake Titicaca
I was not too sure what to expect of Puerto Perez after trying to research and investigate it, although I was looking forward to returning to Lake Titicaca after having been to Copacabana. I had read that it was established in the 1800 s as a home for the Lake Titicaca steamship service by English entrepreneurs. I had also heard of its infamous fishing fleets, which allegedly provide much of the excellent trout and king fish to be found in La Paz. As a result on arrival I was intrigued to see what the village would have to offer, especially as in La Paz, agencies offering excursions to Lake Titicaca only seem to advertise Copacabana and the Islas del Sol and de la Luna, as if they are only ways to see the lake. I was interested to see how Puerto Perez compared.
