    I was a block from this and passed it every morning. If youve seen a church, youve seen this place. Yes,beautiful, but as repetitive and redundant as everywhere else is South America  more »

    Very good place to visit, but I didn't mind having a tour guide with a group explaining within the Church.

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.
