Absolutely a dream. You can almost believe Manco Capac and his wife came out of the lake to found the Inca empire. Crystal clear (12,000 ft. High), the water shimmers. Lots of islands.

Lake Titicaca is certainly worth visiting. I recommend spending a day in Copacabana (and isla del sol) and maybe in Puno.

We came to Copacabana purely because of a recommendation of a hostel and if it wasn’t for our hostel then there really wouldn’t be much to do. We have found it’s pretty dirty here too.
