The Best Hostels in Copacabana, Bolivia, for Budget Travellers Copacabana on Lake Titicaca, Bolivia
Copacabana is a small, bright and enchanting town located on the Bolivian shore of Lake Titicaca, the world's highest navigable lake. The Aymara word 'cota cawuana', which means 'overlooking the lake', was transformed to Copacabana by the Spaniards. With the splendid views you get over Lake Titicaca, the name of the village could not have been chosen better. Situated relatively close to the capital of La Paz, it is a popular resort mostly destination for foreign travellers, meaning that you may feel like there are more Argentinians and Americans than locals. Copacabana is the perfect jump-off point for visiting Isla del Sol and Isla de la Luna and makes a pleasant stopover between La Paz and Puno or Cusco. Featuring beautiful nature walks, ancient sites, stunning sunsets and quaint little restaurants, Copacabana is a travelers' favorite destination to soak in the panoramic views, savor freshly caught trucha, and explore what the Incas believed to be the birthplace of their empire. Try to limit your luggage size when you come to the Copacabana, as the way up the Inca stairs with heavy backpacks and suitcases is pretty tiring, especially when you are not acclimated to the altitude!
