YAVARI STEAMSHIP (MUSEUM SHIP): The Yavarí steamship was built in England in 1862 and Coya steamship in 1892, both ships were transported in pieces from England to Arica Chile (Arica then belonged to Peru) then from Arica to Tacna by train and finally from Tacna to Lake Titicaca (Puno) by mules, crossing the Andes over 4500 masl and more than 2766 pieces. Initially it was thought that it would take 06 months the transport of all Tacna to Puno, but that actually took us 06 years. Today the Yavarí is considered Museum ship and the Coya is tourist restaurant. Thanks to these steamboats the Lake Titicaca earned the name “The highest navigable lake in the world, which sailed between Peru and Bolivia. The Yavarí possess one of the oldest engines of its kind in the world still in operation, thanks to this it is written in the book Guinness World Record.
