This icy high-altitude lake is the legendary birthplace of the Inca civilization, and is also believed to hold precious Inca treasure. When Jacques Cousteau explored the lake for treasure, he discovered instead a large, colorful deep-water frog.

We absolutely loved our time in Copacabana on Lake Titicaca. The lake is beautiful, clear, and relatively clean. In Copacabana, we enjoyed many water activities, including swan pedal boats, these big cylinder floating things that you can roll on the water in, and of course,...More

This is one of those "Dulce Vida" experiences that all visitors should have. Copacabana is probably one of the most charming places to go to enjoy Lake Titicaca, don't miss!

The scenery surrounding this massive lake is so beautiful. There are many islands and several are inhabited. We spent several days on the lake going from island to island, hiking and doing a home stay on Amantani on the Puno, Peruvian side of the lake....More

If you go to Bolivia or Peru this beautiful lake should be on your agenda. Well worth the trouble to get here.

This is a place you should definitely visit if you’re in Bolivia, it is so huge and amazing and the Islands on it are so mysterious and full of beautiful things to see and do. I would definitely come back!

In my Bolivia Peru trip this was one of the dissapointing things. The lake is quite nice, but it's too touristy. The boat tours were so scripted. Especially I found out about this, when the second day to visit a further island I again passed...More
