One of the most popular day trips on Lake Titicaca is to these two mountainous islands a short boat ride from Copacabana. Considered sacred islands, in local mythology this is where the creator god Viracocha emerged from the lake and created the sun and the moon. There are no cars on either island, only steep trails between the ports and villages, and although most visitors come on a day trip, others stick around, taking advantage of the small family-run hostels on Isla del Sol.
