Where I stayed
The guy, however, helped us out and told us that we didn't need to stay in town more than a day, so we booked our ticket out for the next morning and decided to do the tour of the Floating Islands that night. It's a good thing because I was not very impressed with the Floating Islands. It was very touristy and as soon as you get to the island, they try to sell you a million different things- pillow covers, sculptures, necklaces, a boat ride, the clothes off there backs... it was interesting, but not something I need to do again! During the tour, it's mentioned that they get money and supplies from the government because they bring in tourists and they also have a good trade business in fishing, so I wonder why they are so eager to sell all of their handmade trinkets...
The next day we would catch a tourist bus to Cusco!
