A Must-See on Your Way from Peru to Bolivia

In case you are traveling by land from Peru (eq. from Arequipa) to Bolivia (eg. to La Paz) or vice-versa make sure that you make a stop-over in Copacabana just by the border in Bolivia. Then you can take a short ferry journey and spend memorable day and night on Isla del Sol. The magnificent views will make up for your dealing with high altitude... :-)

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:great views, tasty trout and you can sleep on the island:-)
  • Cons:high altitude may cause some disfunctions (eq. headache)
  • In a nutshell:definitelly worth visiting - views make up for everything!

    Spent the night on Isla del Sol in Nov 04. There are now very nice, solar heated options like the La Estancia Ecolodge. You are absolutely right about the views. They are spectacular.
