"Lagua Titicaca en Copacabana" Copacabana by tejanasueca

Copacabana Travel Guide: 25 reviews and 44 photos

Copacabana is a strange mix between old and new. It's proximity to the Sun Island, the scarce islands where the founders of the Inca Empire were born, tells if it's historical aspect. However, it's peaceful location by the shores of the Titicaca Lake has also attracted a young, often western, crowd trying to escape the busy 20th century.

Hence, the street hawkers in this town is a mix of indigenous with colorful traditional clothing, and what we would probably define, "modern day hippies," selling homemade bracelets, etc. It is a rather interesting mix, and it is obvious that some people that have come here on vaction, has simply opted to stay. However, this crowd is not big enough, thankfully, to expand the town in a noticable way. Rather, the town is still small, calm, and peaceful.

Essentially, Copacabana was a rather restfull stop on my South America trip, which included big cities such as Lima, La Paz, and Buenos Aires.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Peaceful...
  • Cons:Other than the trips on Lake Titicaca...there's not that much to do
  • In a nutshell:Provides a relaxing "big city break" for a couple of days...
