Day 1: LA PAZ – COPACABANA – SUN ISLAND

We pick you up in a bus from your hotel between 7:00 and 7:30 am (only from downtown hotels) to start the trip through the vast Altiplano (High Plateau). Two hours later we are going to arrive at Lake Titicaca’s narrowest sector that is known as Estrecho de Tiquina (Strait of Tiquina) which we will cross by local motorboats along with the people from this area.
At 12:00 we arrive in Copacabana. There, we are going to get on a motorboat to head to the Sun Island through Lake Titicaca. At the Sun Island we will visit the ruins of Pilcocaina Palace, an old palace that was built for the exclusive use of the Inca. Later, we will go to Yumani where 3 watersheds Fountain and Escalinata del Inca (Inca’s Staircase) are located.
After taking some pictures of the lake and the spectacular Cordillera Real in the background of the landscape, we will start our ascent of the hill of the island toward our accommodation site, around one-hour walk of medium difficulty.

Day 2: SUN ISLAND – MOON ISLAND – COPACABANA – LA PAZ

After having breakfast, we descend towards the port of the island to get on a boat to go to the Isla de la Luna or Coati where we will visit the archaeological site known as Templo de las Escogidas (Temple of the Virgins). On this island, the Inca women used to learn to knit with Andean textiles and remain virgin to be the Inca’s concubines later. Once our visit to this island is over, we will return to Copacabana for a short visit. This town is rich in Andean/Christian religious syncretism. Finally, we will visit the Sanctuary of Virgin of Copacabana, saint patron of Bolivia, and walk around the town where there are many crafts shops.
Bus to La Paz departs at 1:00 pm and arrives in La Paz around 5:00. Then, you are transported to your hotel.
