Little Copacabana, nestled on the Bolivian shore of Lake Titicaca, is a attractive and relaxing place. Lacking the glitz and glamour of its larger Brazilian namesake, it offers it owns kind of laidback charm. It’s a pleasant place to stop for a day, or a week, on your way between La Paz, Bolivia and Puno or Cusco, Peru.

Copacabana hostels are very tourist-friendly. The city has an abundance of cafes, restaurants, and inexpensive lodgings. It’s a pleasant place to stroll along the lake shore; there are some beautiful hikes heading out of town, you can also climb the two main hills for panoramic views of the lake. The views, literally, take your breath away – at 3,800 metres above sea level, the altitude takes some getting used to.

Just offshore, in the vivid blue splash of Lake Titicaca, the Isla del Sol is a magical place to visit on a day trip or overnight. Tiny, slow boats leave from Copacabana harbor to the island twice daily and make the return trips in early afternoon and evening.

There are just a few hostels in Copacabana, near the lake front and on the Isla del Sol. The town itself is very small, so Copacabana hostels are an easy walk from the main square where buses unload. Ferries to Isla del Sol depart from the harbor, which is also a short walk from the square.
