Amantani is an island located on Lake Titicaca in Puno, where its residents take part in rural community tourism. However, travel agencies are the ones the most benefit from this activity by being an intermediary with the travelers. That is why we hope to have the population become active on the internet (blogs and social media) so that they can offer this touristic service directly.
