Isla del Sol (“Island of the Sun” one of the largest islands of the Lake Titicaca) was believed by the Incas to be the birthplace of the Sun. This Bolivian island contains a large number of ruins from different periods and is mainly populated (and it’s tourism operated) by Aymara Indians. It is a beautiful, calm, rocky island–a must go for any traveller trying to better understand the Incas and their empire, or just to relax and enjoy nature.
