Copacabana is a small, bright and captivating town waiting to be discovered

This small but bustling town acts as the gateway to the Bolivian side of the Lake Titicaca and its islands. Its attractions are varied so make sure not to miss places such as - the impressive Basilica of Our Lady of Copacabana which, on every Sunday of the week, draws people from far and wide to receive the priest's blessing of their newly purchased vehicles.

With a beautiful waterfront view as its highlight, Copacabana will allow you to enjoy beautiful moments such as walking along the lakefront on the quiet residential roads where you can find quiet spots that will truly allow you to intake the overall peacefulness that this town has to offer. Watch the birds over the water and during Summer time try to go for a swim as the water is perfect for this. You can also find vendors renting small boats and paddle-ships during summer to help you get around.
