How to get there: From La Paz we took a bus for 40 Bs each. It was more expensive due to towns that were under riots. A normal ticket any other day is 25 Bs and it takes 3hs instead of 4.
Arriving to Copacabana: The town is ready for tourists, so arriving there you will see plenty of places to stay at and many things to do. We stayed at "Brisas del Titicaca" a hostel on the main avenue almost at the bottom, close to the lake. We paid 60 Bs each for the accommodation with shared bathroom.
The colours of Copacabana are attractive to almost anyone arriving. The few streets that make the centre are always busy and full of life, with stalls on each side selling all kinds of souvenirs.
We arrived and went for a walk around the town, stopping at an office to buy tickets to go to Cusco. When we had that sorted for the following day we were ready to have over 24hs of fun in an area that everyone seemed to recommend.
In Copacabana everything is built for your enjoyment and so, we decided to join. We went to several shops, buying small souvenirs and went for Bolivian food, me hoping for a nice warm soup that would do my stomach a favour after so much travelling around some of the highest grounds on Earth and I was looking for alpaca meat, exclusive to this area of the world.
If you like the "beach" and the party and you're looking to have a bit of fun in a relaxed environment. For us a day was enough to enjoy it to the fullest without getting the urge of moving somewhere new.
