​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.

    Searching I saw on the history of the place, but on the sidewalk nothing is said about the isla. Once there, the pilot boat reports that we have, we have 1 hour to see the island and the ruins. End point. We got off the boat, we went up some stairs and we got two guys that are charging 10 Bolivians to enter. OK, pay the entrance ticket and again period. We were dumped there for 1 hour without understanding what this is about, who they belonged to the ruins. There are a few boards on the site, but nothing too detailed. We observed that there were several other groups in the same situation. There is also an information Office, which was closed.

    Near the island of the Sun, this place was where the virgins were prepared to be chosen by the men who stayed on the island of the Sun, there are ruins on the site. Nice ride.

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.
