This three day extension allows travelers to spend two nights on Sun Island and visit Moon Island and Copacabana. Explore Lake Titicaca, a geographic landmark at the crossroads of the Andes and the Andean plateau. Lake Titicaca is South America's largest and the world's highest navigable lake. According to legend, the son of Inti, the sun god, emerged as the first Inca from the waters of Lake Titicaca.
Explore the ancient sites on Sun Island
Visit the famous cathedral in Copacabana to learn about mystical spiritualism
Trek El Calvario for great views of Lake Titicaca and Copacabana
Early this morning, transfer by private vehicle with your guide to Copacabana. From here, board a boat and head toward 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. Have a traditional atapi lunch (a picnic with local dishes) followed by an hour walk to the Estancia EcoLodge, your home for the evening. Enjoy dinner and the sunset on Lake Titicaca.
Observe the sunrise this morning from the comfort of your bed. After breakfast, travel by boat to the Moon Island. Visit the Inca ruins of Inak Uyu on the northeast shore, believed to be the convent for the Virgins of the Sun.
Return this afternoon by boat to the town of Copacabana. Visit La Horca del Inca and, for those interested, travelers can hike the El Calvario to enjoy a spectacular sunset view of the lake and Copacabana. Spend one last night along the shores of Lake Titicaca.
Day 3: Copacabana | Return to La Paz
This morning you will have the opportunity to explore this picturesque town situated between two mountains on the shores of Lake Titicaca. Visit the cathedral with its dark Virgin of Candelaria statue and museum of European and local religious art, learning about the mystical spiritualism and religion that take place here.
Beyond expectations! Then again we weren't sure what to expect. Lovely stay at the lodge, met other like-minded travelers (many had their trips planned by Adventure Life) and the owner was a gracious hostess. It felt like you were one happy family, visiting with a favorite aunt.

Clara and Rhenee were gracious and available. Phone contact is so important to answer questions and discuss all aspects of trip. If not immediately available they scheduled a time to speak.
They were knowledgeable, honest, realistic and very friendly. They are both very professional and take their role seriously.

The ability (of Kassandra) to tailor a guided trip to my exact preferences is very valuable to me, as well as the ability (of Kassandra) to provide expert guidance on destinations and travel dates. I also appreciate the ability of the backup staff (Maria Ignacio, Exito Travel) to coordinate all the details to make the travel logistics easy for the customer.

Our Costa Rica trip was amazing! Kassandra planned everything and the excursions, hotels, overall organization were outstanding. Everything worked out smoothly, the excursions guides were knowledgeable allowing us to see so much of the fauna and flora of the country. The hotels were great as well, all in fantastic locations and with beautiful views.
