Review: Hotel La Cupula, Copacobana, Bolivia

After spending a fantastic few weeks in Ecuador we flew to Bolivia (as unfortunately we did not have time to also visit the sites of Peru).  We spent our first few days in La Paz organising our tour of the Salt flats and then decided to head to Copacobana at Lake Titicaca for a few days and stay at the Hotel la Cupula.

Lake Titicaca is (by volume) the largest lake in South America, is located on the border between Peru and Bolivia and is absolutely stunning.  We stayed in a great budget hostel/hotel on the hill overlooking the town of Copacobana with beautiful gardens.  The hotel has a restaurant attached to it so on arrival we ate there and enjoyed the stunning views.  The menu is varied and interesting, the staff and very friendly and the food when it arrived was tasty.  We also had a pitcher of fresh orange juice which was delicious.

The restaurant made amazing sandwiches which you could also order as a packed lunch if you were going on day trips around the area.  We did this after tasting how good the food was!  I also sampled the fruit museli from the breakfast menu which was huge and very satisfying.

In addition to a great restaurant the hostel has a kitchen available for those who wish to cook for themselves.  The kitchen is lovely, as it is set in a cottage building overlooking the gardens.  We cooked for ourselves in here with food bought down at the food market and had a fun evening.

If you don’t stay in the hostel then its definitely worth visiting the restaurant for the spectacular views and delicious food.
