Bolivia Things to Do: 203 reviews and 302 photos


Enjoy the view and the ferry ride across the Straight of Tiquina on your way to Copacabana. You'll ride separately from the ride that got you to this point until you cross the Tiquina. The ferry ride is about .25 cents and it lasts about 10 minutes. The picture you see here is the view from my ferry of our bus. All of your luggage stays on the bus ofcourse and you can only hope it will reach the other side with you:) Believe it or not, i only took notice of the fact that life vests are not required after my entire trip was over (something to think about). There have been instances where the buses and ferrys have sunk. I highly recommend booking your trip with a well known company (check with your hotel).
