Copacabana is a tourist spot and the main town on the shore of Lake Titicaca. It’s recognized for its famous Basilica of Our Lady of Copacabana, where the Virgin of Copacabana is housed. A relatively small town, Copacabana sits between Mount Calvario and Mount Niño Calvario, near La Paz. It’s sometimes referred to as “Copa,” and despite being popular with tourists, it maintains its small town charm.

The name is from the Aymara phrase kota kawana, which means "view of the lake." Despite Rio’s claim, this is the original Copacabana, which lent its name to the famous Brazilian beach. Do not miss seeing the Copacabana Cathedral, as Our Lady of Copacabana is the patron saint of Bolivia. The statue inside is believed to hold healing powers and was originally carved with cactus.
