Fodor's Expert Review Posada del Inca Eco Lodge

Isla del Sol, La Paz, Bolivia Fodor's Choice

Your stay at this lovely posada, what is surely the best lodging on the island, begins with a 30-minute mule ride from the boat dock to the garden-lobby, where fruit trees shade handmade reed couches, and the hillside location offers sweeping lake views. Rooms in this beautifully restored, colonial-style hacienda are attractively furnished with reclaimed wood, and showers, wall heaters, and electric blankets are all powered by solar energy. Before dinner, guests gather around the fire in the cozy bar where oxygen is available for those acclimating to the altitude. Rooms must be booked as part of a hydrofoil tour with Crillón Tours in La Paz, making this one of the more expensive options on the island.
