It's worth staying on in Copacabana just to enjoy this alternative-style hotel tucked below the hills at one corner of the bay. Breakfast, costing (Bs)25, is exceptional, especially if you're a vegetarian. The five kitchen-equipped bungalows with tranquil lake views, creative natural designs, and a separate reception area make it all the more interesting. You can relax in a garden hammock or curl up with a book in the library. There is also a communal kitchen and a TV
room with a selection of more than 130 DVDs. The charming upstairs restaurant is open to the public. It tends to book up early.
