I didn't see any particularly wild nightspots in Copacabana but when the night gets cold Nimbo is a nice place to warm up. They have a fireplace, and live music to go with coffee, and hot chocolate, perhaps with extra flavoring, or a hot wine. It has a nice chill feel in a warm, cozy bar.

As Bolivia does not boarder any oceans, their navy is stationed by Lake Titicaca. The navy is small, but proud. Bolivia is since many years back in a dispute with Chile regarding their right to have a small corridor in northern Chile out to the Pacific Ocean. Hence, the motto of the Bolivia Navy is to make claim to this piece of coast line they feel they are entitled too. While they wait for this to happen, the have to settle with these kinds of trainings on the shores of Lake Titicaca.

It's impossible to walk all the way to Isla del sol from Copacabana, but you can do a walk untill Yampupata. There is a little harbor here where you can pay some one do transfer you to Isla del Sol.It's about 17 km from Copacabana to Yampupata. Once you're transfered to the Isla it's about 3km to the village.
The walk itself passes through a few small villages and has many spectacular views of Lake Titicaca.
The transfer over Lake Titicaca was one to remember as well. A 70 year old man rowed us to Isla del Sol (After having a lot of coca leaves). People are hard workers over here.
On Isla del Sol we had to walk over the terrasses to get to the village.
I recommend this walk to everyone who's not afraid to do 20 km on this altitude.
!!! INCA SHORTCUT
Once you are at a lourdes cave (which is a bit of the road) you have two possibilities: or stay at the road or take the inca shortcut. The track of the shortcut is hard to see, but do as we did and you'll be allright) just keep on going up and follow the animal droppings.
The shortcut isn't easy, it is very steep and it will take less energy if you take the normal road.
