Yunguyo – Border of Bolivia
At the border to Bolivia
Yunguyo is a small town in the southeastern region of Puno, located on a peninsula on the southwest shore of Lake Titicaca. Yunguyo is the capital of Yunguyo province and Yunguyo district. The population of the city has increased by about 40% in the last two decades. Thus, the population of about 9,036 inhabitants (the estimate from 1993) to more than 11,890 inhabitants (the census from 2005) has now grown to over 12,878 inhabitants (latest estimate from 2009). Just east of the city, the state border with Bolivia, and from there a paved road leads to the coastal town of Copacabana on the bolivian side a few kilometers away. Yunguyo is with the nearby Desagudero one of the possible border crossings to Bolivia, with most of the transport between Bolivia and Peru but via Desaguadero done, if only because the road connection to the bolivian capital La Paz is more direct and developed than here. Yunguyo usually represents the transfer of people for day trippers to Copacabana and backpackers, because the border formalities may last as long as in Desaguadero, but not so heavily frequented by the export traffic.
