Tips from the community

Yes, there is a place of the same name in Brazil and to be honest it’s probably more famous because of the beach there. You won’t find the beach here but I prefer the Bolivian Copacabana. It’s located on Lake Titicaca and is where, allegedly, the first Inca was born. The sunsets here over the lake will rival any place on the planet and the White Cathedral is well worth a visit too. I got a private room for 20 bucks at Hostal Luis with free breakfast. It’s in a good part of town and easy to reach all the main sites.
