Photo Friday: Copacabana Bolivia

Just a few bits to get a good idea of the very cute and quaint town Copacabana Bolivia on the Bolivian side of Lake Titicaca. To get to Isla del Sol, many people tend to camp out here before taking the ferry over. 🙂

Quick tip: It gets very cold on Copacabana and Isla del Sol at night. Make sure to keep that in mind when planning your wardrobe.

Who knew that I would actually be able to see the wonders of Lake Titicaca. LOVE THIS PLACE

    Yeaaaah, stunning! I see I will have to definitely visit this place soon! Guys, where are you now? I will be traveling around Bolivia the whole April 🙂

      @CSFT: We’re actually currently in Argentina. You will definitely need at least a month in Bolivia. We ended up spending 5 weeks and could have been there more.

    Great shots. Even though it looks hot, I see many of the people in the first pic are in hoodies. Looks great!

    Does anyone have any advice on whether to stay in Copacabana or Puno – or both?! I read you can’t access Isla del Sol from the Peruvian side. Thanks!

      @Arianwen: For places in Copacabana, you basically have to run off your bus and hope for the best. All places are about the same price though so keep your eyes open. Just don’t expect much out of the internet. Also, it is true that IdS cannot be accessed from Peru. Not sure if you have an visa restrictions like we do though. 🙂

        Thanks Erica!
        I think I will have to stay in Copacabana whether or not I stay in Puno. I’m happy to chance accommodation and I definitely want to see the IdS. I think as a Brit I’m pretty fortunate when it comes to visas 🙂
        Really appreciate your advice!
