Isla De La Luna, Copacabana

3.7
#5 of 10 in Things to do in Copacabana
​A historic small island, Isla De La Luna emanates cultural significance and rich stories of the ancient Incan people. Wander the dry and hilly terrain discovering multiple archaeological ruins while surrounded by the vast blue waters of Lake Titicaca. The main ruin is an amphitheatre nunnery, a significant site of the "Chosen Women" in Incan religion. The island’s tranquil atmosphere is complimented by premium views of both the Andes and mainland. Experience the villager lifestyle by observing the off shore trout cages with a local fisherman. It is recommended to pack some water and sunscreen.

  • Cross the beautiful Lake Titicaca in a boat is already a big date; meet the Isla del Sol, where he emerged the Inca Empire, climb your stairway, meet the ruins, it all becomes a very nice program. If the tour include the floating cities of totora, better yet.

  • We were very disappointed because the only highlight of the island are the remains of an Incan site, what would be probably interesting, but only 45 minutes got time through our tour to run up, to look at everything! Absolutely not enough and if you are not particularly interested in such cultural sites worth a visit not definitely!

  • You can buy a tour with the island of the Moon included or only Isla del sol, there exist some ruins and a viewpoint overlooking the Lake.

  • Very interesting to learn the history of this island, its inhabitants, and the purposes for which they used it.
  • The island offers a good view of the Lake. I could visit the Temple of the virgins. Unfortunately had no posters or guides that give you information about the place.

  • Beautiful place to walk and see beautiful landscapes. The view to the Apus (mountains) is great. Recommend camping on top. They charge today on day 10 bs entry. It has clean, spacious bathrooms.

  • Very disappointed, there is nothing to see, 40 bolivianos and 2 h boat just for nothing... (because the day before I had spent a whole day at Isla del ground, and I thought again round-trip Copacabana/isla of the Moon in the same way.) I advise you to visit Isla del ground directly, as I did to enjoy

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.
