The Uros Islands consist of a small collection of man made reed islands that rest on the surface of (Western) Lake Titicaca. They are quite spectacular in that they are completely man made, but vendors hassling everyone and the overpriced souvenirs do take something away from the charm of this place. We didn't stick around for long and before nightfall we had crossed into Bolivia. The border town of Copacabana has a fairly relaxed, family atmosphere
The main reason however for staying in Copacabana is a trip to Isla del Sol on the Bolivian side of Lake Titicaca. A beautiful, rugged island we spent a night here to watch the sunset.
In terms of comparing Bolivia to Peru, I don't want to judge a country by one town, but it's going to be difficult to beat Peru. At least Bolivia should be cheaper.
