Copacabana is about 135 km from La Paz.
You go to Ticina -which is about 100 km from La Paz. There you have to take a ferry - wooden lanches - to cross Lake Titicaca -takes about half an hour and arriving on the other side it will take about 20 minutes to reach Copacabana.
It will take you at least 1 1/2 to 2 hours by private car - 50 minutes is a fairy tale. The route is very scenic as you travel along the "holy lake" of the Incas.
Enjoy it - Paul Stach, La Paz
