  • Without being a lecturer, my guide was tremendously informative and affable, teaching not only the significance of this lake and the city at its edge, but on local customs, foods (Dont miss a snack of...  more »
  • Lake Titicaca is really wonderful, these imposing statues are welcomed to a wonderful view of the Lake. I went on a few boats and toured part of the Lake. Me apune

  • The Lake is beautifully – simply fascinating. You should have seen him before the ecological disaster is complete. Admittedly, sounds cynical. Already the journey from La Paz showed the problem. Everything is gawking along the road, allowing actually fantastic views on the natural wonders of the mountains and the Lake. The rivers as well as Lake can be seen, how will drain water untreated waters into. It's completely understandable that people around the Lake see their prospects in tourism, realized not just the extensive risks and consequences, and make ecological damage in purchase. Unmistakably great poverty in Bolivia. Still, there are backpacker, that characterize the offer in Copacabana first and foremost. The crowds will increase probably, like many beautiful spots on Earth. What they say: tourists destroy what you are looking for, find it. Unfortunately the economic political front is getting. Instead of once to create the infrastructure for a sustainable tourism, uncontrolled growth without regard for losses will be tolerated. I suspect that the revenue flow through tourism in the conservation of natural resources. This is certainly not a purely Bolivian problem.

  • Amazing place! One of those "must see" places. Just don't jump off the boat into the freezing water as I did. I couldn't breve - VERY cold water
  • You can come and visit the highest lake in the world that is divided between Peru and Bolivia you can enjoy a beautiful view and admire all it's greatness, also you can enjoy of some touristic places such as copacabana, la isla del sol, etc. Or! You can relax and enjoy taking a ride by boat and many things more, you have to visit it to convince yourself.
  • The "highest navigable lake" in the world with enriched history and culture. it's also habitat of The Uru an indigenous people of Peru and Bolivia. They live on forty-two self-fashioned floating islands in Lake Titicaca which is famous as Floating Islands of Take Titicaca. If you are in peru please do visit the famous floating Island and get a chance to spend a Night with Locals
  • Horrible, I couldn't pronounce the name. Very angry would rate better but it has no free wifi hotpots
  • To reach some of the more remote floating islands like TITINO you just roam the harbor in the later afternoon and find an URO skipper who was born on one of them and who will take you and your mate out there for about $55 usd early the next morning- be prepared to take apples or healthy gifts to island kids and pay a black-blooded elder $20 to $30 usd for spending a couple of hours in their reed kingdom. And don't get a sunburn!
