This is a great place to go in the Peruvian Jungle. You can take a boat that will take around the Lake for about an hour. They have so many restaurants, zoo, and great views

The local tour group provided pick up service from our hotel and took us to the lake. It was a full day of touring on the lake, seeing birds and dolphins, stopping at a local native village souvenir market, piranha fishing and lunch at Sachamama

Guides can be very pushy. Do not bother with La Jungla, it is a sad sad little zoo. The lake itself was fantastic! Next time I plan to check out San Francisco.
