Introducing Copacabana

Nestled between two hills and perched on the southern shore of Lake Titicaca, Copacabana (Copa) is a small, bright and enchanting town. It was for centuries the site of religious pilgrimages and today local and international pilgrims still flock to its fiestas.

Although it can appear a little tourist-ready, the town is a pleasant place to wander around. It has scenic walks along the lake and beyond, is the launching pad for visiting Isla del Sol and Isla de la Luna and makes a pleasant stopover between La Paz and Puno or Cuzco in Peru.
