La Paz to Copacabana

Company: Local Bus
Type: Minivan
Price: 40 BOB each
Duration: 3 hrs

Description: Following a fascinating nature filled jungle tour in the Bolivian Amazon basin we flew back to La Paz and made our way to Copacabana on Lake Titicaca, a small town situated close to the boarder of Peru. The cheapest way to get there is by a local mini bus from the Cemetery General, just north of the city centre. We crammed on with a load of locals and made our way along the windy roads surrounded by towering mountains. 

As we approached the small town of Tiquina the mini bus boarded a large wooden cargo boat that took us over the lake crossing. The driver kept trying to charge us extra for the stop, but luckily an Argentinian guy who was on the bus with us told us we didn't have to. We continued the last stretch of the journey to Copacabana and arrived at the pretty main square in front of the Cathedral before making our way to a nearby hostel.
