Day 1 Drive to Lake Titicaca - Visit Copacabana and Sun Island

  • 1 Lunch
Transfer from La Paz by private vehicle to Copacabana (3 hour drive) and visit this picturesque town situated between two mountains and on the shores of Lake Titicaca. Explore the Inca sites outside of the city as well as the cathedral with its dark Virgin of Candelaria statue and museum of European and local religious art. You will have lunch in Copacabana as well.

We board a boat and head towards the Sun Island (1 hour ride). The Sun Island is worshipped as the birthplace of Manco Kápac and Mama Ocllo, the first founders of the Inca empire. With your guide, tour the Pilkokaina Palace, the Inca’s Fountain, and the 200 stairs of Yumani. The views from the Sun Island are spectacular.

This afternoon return to Copacabana and continue to La Paz. The full day tour is approximately 10 hours with private guide service.

The trip was terrific with great planning on your part. Most of the adventures were not mainstream and somewhat off the beaten path which made it especially enjoyable!! We felt taken care of and you all were readily available to respond to questions and issues. I would highly recommend your company and friends have already expressed interest based on our pictures and excitement.
