So many unforgettable moments on our trip to Isla del Sol last week. It has to be one of the most special and serene places on Earth, and La Estancia is a wonderful place to experience the island's magical beauty and tranquility. The cottages are built on pre-Incan terraces, and the view from all of them is almost overwhelming: endless...

Hi! You have no idea how important it's for me, for us, to read your kind words. It seems that you were really inspired.

I stayed for one night with a friend from the 16th till the 17th November. From the moment we arrived someone welcomed us and took our luggage by donkey whilst we walked the scenic route. The walk to the lodge was beautiful and upon arrival we were taken to our cabin by the friendly staff. The room was warm, clean,...

Best stay in all of Bolivia! The location is incredible, with a beautiful, panoramic view of the lake and mountains. The quality of the food and lodges are spectacular!

A beautifully peaceful respite from the tourist trail. The staff were lovely and the rooms were simple but perfect. The view is magical. Sitting there, sipping coca tea in the quiet of dusk, overlooking the waters of Titicaca will never be forgotten.

Perfect and calm view on the lake. Confortable rooms, good food, and excellent service. There is even hot water!! A bit of a walk to get there but if you can walk, it's worth it. I highly recommend it.

Hi Vanessa, Thank you so much for your comment. Yes, indeed we are one of the only hotels on the Island with hot water. This is thanks to our solar panels - a crucial environmental aspect of our lodge. Glad to hear you recommend others that the walk is worth it! It really is. Thanks again and until next time!

Our room had a scenic view over the lake and the mountains, the lodge was outside the village but the walk is pleasant. The team was really friendly and the food tasty. We were really happy to contribute to this environment-friendly project.

Do your homework before you go. The climb is steep from the shores of lake Titicaca to the lodge but well worth the effort. The accommodation is simple, clean and cosy.

“All seem spectacularly situated, but we made sure to request a matrimonial cottage to share a bed (rather than two twins, as some have).”

“Ask for the first row lodges or the lowest lodges, to enjoy a view with no rooftops in front.”

“The water is solar heated. Have your shower in the evening or before dinner so that it is hot. Depending on the time of year the water may be cold in the morning. Each unit is a separate little cottage. You may want to have a torch for walking to and from the dining room in the dark.”
