    Isla del Sol. Easier to get to than Taquile and Uros are just a tourist trap. Don't try to cram in too much, just stay on Isla del Sol and do the stunningly beautiful walk from one end to the other and get a boat back to where you started and catch a boat back to Copacabana and go straight to Cusco. I wouldn't even bother with Puno. Either spend a night in Copacabana and visit the beautiful church, or get extra time in Cusco.
