* See the patron saint of Bolivia, the Virgen de la Candelaria, at the Basilica de Nuestra Señora de Copacabana. The building was built in 1550 then reconstructed in 1610 and 1651. It has a large collection of religious objects and is the destination of many a pilgrim coming to see the virgin.
When to go
Copacabana is located at a really high altitude so the weather is pretty cold. It usually stays between 9°C and -10°C.
How to get there
From La Paz or Puno take a tourist bus that you can arrange at a travel agency. They will pick you up at your hostel usually at 8am.
Citizens of the E.U., Australia, and Canada do not need a visa to enter Bolivia. U.S. citizens however are required to pay $100 for their visa which is good for 5 years and allows 3 entries into the country a year.
Tipping is not generally done in Bolivia except at very nice restaurants.
