Moon Island Bolivia Tour is a private day car trip from La Paz to Copacabana.

You’re going to navigate from Sicuani pier gaining time to explore the Island.

Navigating by motor boat from Copacabana to Mon Island or Isla de la Luna in Bolivia on the waters of Lake Titicaca simply a few do. It is a great experience to travel and enjoy the surrounding scenic views, the temple of the virgins of the Sun. 

When you book a boat trip from Copacabana, this journey could take a lot of time (1h 55min boat ride) and the time to stay on Moon Island is reduced from 30 to 45 minutes.

From our point of view for planning better and enjoying the most of your visit to Island of the Moon, there is an uncommon, or at least not regularly taken by local operators, which is to drive from Copacabana to Sicuani pier for 30 min then immediately aboard a covered section local motor boat to go to Moon Island navigating for 40 min only.

We have run this unique way to reach Moon Island since we don't want to get trapped in the crowds. We really want to offer the best off the beaten tours.
