Head to the shores of Lake Titicaca to view Copacabana Cathedral which holds the Virgen de Copacabana. Built in the 17th century, the cathedral was made to honor the patron saint of Bolivia.

  • after Peru reach Copacabana could not visit the Cathedral where the Virgin of Copacabana is located if you will spend a few days in this city, I recommend you visit the Cathedral ah and also the island of the Sun and the Moon and trout food on the market is the best lunch. I'll already be in La Paz and write my experiences.

  • Dear readers, this is my first visit when I go to Copacabana, she is so pretty and her Museum's large tourist. She's still beautiful and I never miss with my wife to honor him because it is his visit. There is the blessing of the cars to see once, to understand the tradition and cultural life of the country. I'm in la Paz, and I advise you with all sincerity.

Where to stay in Copacabana

Set in such a scenic spot on the shores of Lake Titicaca, it's little wonder that people wish to stay in Copacabana when exploring the region's natural and cultural attractions. Beachside stays remain popular, with chic, boutique style hotels and larger high-rise options offering extensive views of South America's largest lake. Expect to pay a little less when you look a few streets back from the sand and the water, with hotels and hostels both available. Thanks the Copacabana's continuous uphill slope, views of the lake are possible from pretty much anywhere around the main urban area.
