There's lots of action here. A constant flow of back packers and locals walking up from the lake, or else walking down to catch a boat to the Sun Island. Argentinian hippies can be seen selling sandwiches to the day trippers, hustling for the tour...More

The main street of Copacabana, full of restaurants and souvenir shops. None of the restaurants are that great but wish I'd bought jewelery while the.

Walking on this street is the most harassing experience you will encounter in the town. Go up further and visit the markets and cathedral. The town is not a place to hang up for more than a day, most restaurants are too dirty to eat...More

This ave is located in between the cathedral and the plaza and takes you straight to the lake. What are you looking for, Souvenirs, lunch, dinner, coffee, drinks? Maybe the bus out of Capo or the cheapest tours in the city. All of it is...More

Leading from the beach front to the cathedral, this is the main drag for Copacabana. You'll find it lined with travel agencies, restaurants, bars and souvenir shops, as well as some hostels. Nothing of particular interest, but you'll find it easy to book your onward...More

Lots to see and so many shops and restaurants to choose from. A lot of stalls also where you can buy pretty much anything. You can't avoid the Avienda 6 de Agosto so on your way to the cathedral or other attractions enjoy the walk!

If you need to make any holiday purchases, this is likely to be the place to get things. This street is a thriving, busy market street which has lots of little shops, tourist booking offices, money exchange places and eating spots; all of which are...More

I have been to many towns similar to the setup here. There is Playa del Carmen in Mexico. For every one of them, there is always a street that clusters all the “happenings”, where vendors offer everything to the tourists, eateries, internet cafes and almost...More
