Heading to Copacabana? If you want to take a break from the usual hotels, check out this quirky little place called Hostal Las Olas Guesthouse. This is a complex of ten private villas, each of which has a different shape and unique interior (especially the sink stands out among them). Guest House Las Olas has an extravagant Gaudí style and a beautiful view. What else can you dream of while traveling?
The houses were built using mostly natural materials from the region and sustainability is taken very seriously. Each suite has its own kitchen, living room, bathroom and even a fireplace. But the best thing is that they are located on a hillside with the most breathtaking view of Lake Titicaca. So consider yourself forewarned: it can be dangerously tempting to forgo sightseeing and relax by lying in a hammock all day and admiring the view.
As soon as you decide to get out of the hammock, you can take a few walks here. You can go hiking in Orca del Inca (a pre-Inca solar observatory), climb El Calvario (a great place to watch the sunset), or walk through the Bolivian countryside all the way to the village of Yampupata. And of course, you can’t leave Copacabana without exploring the magical Island of the Sun on Lake Titicaca. The cruise can be arranged by the hosts at Hostal Las Olas.
