The city of Puno, Peru is a popular tourism and traveler’s destination for a few reasons, the most obvious being the fact that it’s located on the shore of world famous and fascinating Lake Titicaca.

The other reason Puno sees a lot of travelers is because it offers relatively easy border crossing choices to Bolivia- which is just on the other side of the lake.

Many Peruvian travelers use Puno as a basecamp to a Bolivian vacation.
