The real Copacabana
About 2 years ago
A sleepy little town that's the namesake of the beach in Rio. Located on the Bolivian side of Lake Titicaca, it can be reached easily by bus from Puno, Peru or La Paz, Bolivia. Dominating the town is the Basicilica, built by Spaniards, largely in Moorish style, a building that at the same type looks completely out-of-place and fits right in. Rides on the lake to the Islands of the sun or moon are also not to be missed. Popular with backpackers, Copacabana makes for a relaxing and interesting stop if traveling from Peru to Bolivia (or even Chile).
