Located on the shores of Lake Titicaca, the highest navigable lake in the world, Copacabana is the jumping off point to discover the sacred Incan island of the Isla del Sol, whilst the town itself is known for its traditional festivals and processions that take place throughout the year starting from its famous 16th Century shrine – the Basilica of Our Lady of Copacabana. During your stay, be sure to enjoy the trout that the town has become famous for and walk up the Cerro Calvario (Calvary Hill) to watch the sunset over the lake.

A truly charming and quirky place to stay, Las Olas has been designed by two artists who built the hostal using as many natural and local materials as possible and aiming to respect traditional construction methods.
