cuzco would be your best option, and you'll need to go back there from Agua Calientes anyway. In any case, pick a place with a lot of foreigners, since NY in an all-spanish environment if you don't speak the language can be a lone affair...

Copacabana is nice, though I guess it's too quiet to anyone's taste to celebrate NY. La Paz is a crazy city; if you know someone there, it's as good a city as any to celebrate, but if you don't, I think you'll feel a bit lost there. In any case, IF you decide in favour of LP, leave everything of any importance in your hotel when you go out, and make sure that you have very trustworthy company. Although it's usually an all-right city, I've heard discomforting rumours about nasty things happening during big events.
