City of Copacabana

Copacabana lies near the Titicaca lake. Based on old christian religion thoughts, Copacabana and its cathedral are visited by numerous pilgrims during all the year. This city is a sweet place to have a rest. The border of Peru is just near for those who want to continue in this direction.


The road from La Paz to Copacabana crosses Titicaca's lake Hum, nice to take another boat to cross :-)))

Isla del Sol

Several islands can be found on Titicaca's lake. Two in particular are famous for their history and links to ancient local tribes. Isla del Sol and Isla de la Luna can be visited from Copacabana with a boat.
