  • If you want to know more about the Bolivian culture I think this place is a must-see, Bolivians are very attached to their customs and beliefs; Learn about church and is the important thing is for Bolivians should be part of the visit to Copacabana on the outside seems a somewhat common Church, but when you enter is another world, you have a very beautiful Declaration

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.
