This beautiful island can be easily visited in a one day tour from Copacabana, although travellers often find themselves overstaying their visit and taking an extended break here, away from the chaos and crowd.

The rocky island of Isla del Sol lies on the south end of the vast Lake Titicaca. It is the perfect stop when crossing the border between Bolivia and Peru.

According to Inca mythology the Lake and the Isla del Sol are considered the birthplace of the first Inca Emperor – Manco Capac and his wife Mama Ocllo – created by the Sun God (Inti God).

According to the Inti legend, Manco Capac and his siblings were sent to the Earth by the sun god and emerged from the cave of Isla del Sol carrying a golden staff. The journey took years to get to Cusco as well as building a temple for Inti in the city.
