Isla del Sol Titicaca Tour
Private Day Car Trip from La Paz
Navigating by motor boat from Copacabana to Isla del Sol on the waters of Lake Titicaca simply sounds a great way to travel and enjoy the surrounding scenic views, but unfortunately we have to tell you that the boat journey could take a lot of time (1h 30min boat ride) and the time to stay on Sun Island is just 30-45 min, which is oppressive among the crowds at the same time.
From our point of view for planning better and enjoying the most of your visit to Island of the Sun, there is an uncommon, or at least not regularly taken by local operators, which is to drive from Copacabana to Yampupata pier for 30 min then immediately aboard a covered section local motor boat to go to Yumani community navigating for 15 min only.
We have run this unique way to reach Isla del Sol since we don't want to get trapped in the crowds. We really want to offer the best off the beaten tours.
It is pricey but at the end it will worth it!
While driving to Yampupata a magnificent view rises in front of us, on the left side is the immensity of the Lake in contrast to the right side landscape offers singular rock formations, trees everywhere, up and down paths, local people in their daily basis, etc.
You don't travel alone. You get an English speaking tour guide. Who is friendly, expert and knowledgeable guy delivering some very good cultural and historical approaching of the place.
Our team will make you feel like in family.
