Hostelling International Bolivia presents the new HI-Hostel “Inka Pacha”, located in the sacred Isla del Sol (Island of the Sun) in the Titicaca Lake. A bit over an hour from Copacabana to South Port by boat. After a 30min climb to the famous Inca Stairs from the South Port, you get to HI-Hostel INKA PACHA. Come and enjoy the superb views and the delicious food in our new hostel, entirely built according to ecological concerns. The hostel offers a number of different well-kept rooms, including dormitory, matrimonial, double and family rooms (with and without private bathroom), most of which offer a stunning panorama view over the Titicaca Lake and Real Mountain Range. Don Martín and his family serve breakfast; lunch and dinner (try “Trout a la Romana”, fresh from the lake!) and offer you interesting trips to the Incas’ nearby Temple of the Sun, the Island of the Moon and the island’s northern part where you can find the mystic “Head of the Puma”. You can also buy ferry tickets to Copacabana in the hostel . HOSTELLING INTERNATIONAL BOLIVIA RECOMMENDS: Bring only little luggage when you come to the island, the way up the Inca stairs with heavy backpacks and suitcases is pretty tiring, especially when you haven’t got used to the height yet! There are no banking facilities on the island, so make sure you bring enough money (and change!). Don’t get mislead by the ‘tourist hunting’ boys at the port! The boys play truant to earn commissions leading tourists to other hostels – don’t support them neglecting their education! From the South Port you just have to walk up to the Inca stairs, going past the fountain, to the little village “Yucumani”, you can’t miss the hostel! HOSTEL CONDITIONS: A new building on the island's most beautiful spot - just above the Inca Virgins Stairs and the Inca Fountain! Amazing sunrise view over the Lake Titicaca and the snow peaked Andes from your hostel rooms. DIRECTIONS TO HOSTEL: By bus from La Paz (Bolivia) or Puno(Peru) daily to Copacabana - then by boat 1,5 hours to the South Port of Sun Island - and just up the stairs! LOCATED NEAR: Located near the South Port in the village of Yucumani - lovely trekking to all Inca sites, ruins and museums - boat trip to Moon Island. | more......
