More expensive than usual for Bolivia but still very cheap by north American standard, Las Olas is probably the best place to stay in Copacabana. The little houses are all so unique and interesting. Very clean, well equipped, the beds are comfortable, great view and great location. I don't know what more to ask. Oh I know, they have guitars at the front desk that you can borrow. And a book exchange. And 2 cool cats guarding the property!
