Lonely Planet review
You can’t get much further off the beaten track than Ccotos, two-thirds of the way down Capachica peninsula’s east coast. Nothing ever happens here except the annual Miss Playa (Miss Beach) competition, in which the wearing of bathing suits stirs much controversy. You can stay with the engaging Alfonso Quispe and his family, right on the edge of a lake. Catch your own fish for breakfast, bird-watch, hike to the lookout and some overgrown ruins, and relax on the beach, which is arguably Capachica’s most beautiful (but it’s a tough call).
Our independent authors have visited Alfonso Quispe and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Ccotos & Isla Ticonata.
