Pack whatever necessities you need for a two-day journey, and don’t forget your camera! You will be picked up and taken to the Sanctuary of Copacabana, where after you will visit the Catamaran Cruise. A catamaran is a small water vessel that has just as many luxuries as a yacht, so you’ll be experiencing what amounts to a private journey. Aboard the boat, you can enjoy a slew of refreshments en route to the Island of the Sun, which is considered the cradle of the Incan Empire.
For a relatively small island, it is not light on historic features that will leave you speechless. The legendary island Garden is like an ancient amusement park, filled with stone steps, the Fountain of the Inca, and beautiful plant life. Then, it’s on to the IntiWata Cultural Complex, which is widely considered to be the best tour in all of Bolivia. Some of the highlights of this tour include:
When lunch is over, the tour just keeps getting better. Next, it’s off to Challapampa, which is a very small, indigenous island north of the Island of the Sun. The locals here are incredibly friendly and will introduce you to culture that the rest of the world has outgrown by thousands of years. You will get to witness a wide assortment of cultural landmarks, such as local homes, the local school, a chapel, a historic museum, and more.
The locals have devised an innovative program that actually treats you just like an island resident. You will get to sail around in a fishing vessel and see exactly what it’s like to live an islander’s life. You will get to hike ancient Incan trails, visit the temple of Chinkana, and when the night falls, you can enjoy a candlelit dinner aboard the catamaran – perfect for love birds.
DAY 6: CATAMARAN TOUR OF LAKE TITICACA (DAY 2)
The second day of your catamaran journey is much more tranquil and explorative. Rather than hobnobbing with locals and participating in customs, you will enjoy the views and sail around the area, with only a couple of quick stops. After a buffet breakfast to start your day, you will get to check out an amazing panoramic view of Copacabana. Shortly after, get ready to see the Cathedral of the Virgin of Copacabana, and the Sanctuary.
