Copacabana(Lake Titicaca) to La Paz

I am traveling mid September and want to go from Copacabana to La Paz ,ideally directly to our hotel in La Paz. What are travel options-we are an older couple so would like some measure of comfort.

If only option is the tourist buses to the cemetary area is it possible/easy to get taxi from there to hotel.

Thanks Richard

Have just left Bolivia just make sure your schedule is not too tight as always strikes and traffic issues in La Paz. We had a private guide and car from Copacabana but did see buses on route. At one stage you will do a ferry crossing which is interesting. Copacabana is a lovely laid back town also Isla de Sol very pretty if you have the time.

We did the tourist bus via Kanoo tours and it was quite comfortable

we went the other way - but there are lots of "tourist buses" available in Copocabana and should be able to drop you at hotel.

I would agree if you ask around the tourist travel agents you should,be able to get on a small bus which should be able to drop you at the hotel. Tip: make sure the correct hotel or not just one that sounds like it .

We just did it- we booked 2 tickets last minute and we took a tourist class bus- left at 1:30 pm arrived at La Paz at 5:00pm, 30 Bolis.

Comfortable- video system, AC- no bathroom though. They make 1 stop to cross the lake for about 45 minutes- you'll have to take a passenger boat and wait on the other side for your bus.

Our driver made a special request stop for photos of La Paz.

Regarding your Hotel stops- our bus had one big central stop- and all your luggage is handed out there. Lots of cabs will be waiting for you.

There's a billion tour agencies in Copa- so you'll be able to find one really easily- I think they mentioned there were 8-9 buses daily to La Paz.

Other option is to book private transport back to la La Paz- not sure how much the cost
