Celebrating New Year in Puno was magical. We went to a mystical party at a restaurant in the city, where we had a flourishing bath of ancient traditional rituals. A shaman gave us blessings and then we wrote our wishes and burned them so the gods could read them. It was a different and unique experience.
The best beef, alpaca, lamb, beef, fish and guinea pig, etc. are all eaten in the Pizzeria Giorgio. It's a great option to consider in Puno, with eclectic menus, a friendly staff, off-menu dishes, music, and it's centrally-located near the main square and Pine Park.
