Situated on the shores of Lake Titicaca, Copacabana is a picturesque little town which is the starting point for tours to Island of the Sun.
It is also a popular stop on the route between La Paz and Puno/Cusco. Visiting and crossing the world's highest navigable lake is a surreal experience that you shouldn't miss.
You can catch boats to the Isla de Sol by simply going down to the lake side (its a very small place - just walk down the main highstreet downhill and you wil see) and there are boats leaving from there.
Whilst you can get a return ticket for slightly cheaper it is often best just to get a one way as it can be hard to find the same boat for the return journey sometimes or just because it gives you more flexability so you can just get the next one leaving to come back.
We offer a two-day tour to Copacabana and the Sun Island or self-guided one-day tours as part of a hop on/hop off experience between Bolivia and Peru. If you are only interested in transport to and from Copacabana without a tour, then you can find all the options we offer in our Transport section.
