Coroico the Death Road

COROICO: DEATH ROAD ADVENTURE , CITRICS, COFEE, BANANAS , COCA FACTS AND PLANTATIONS / 3 days and two nights

This interesting tour will let you experiment and truly enjoy the world famous “road of death.” The story tells us that from 1930`s to 2000 this was the only way to reach the “gold” coca and fruits in the rich areas of the “Yungas.” As a result everyday hundreds of trucks, buses and other cars drove though, and in some cases they fell vertically down to 400 mts/ 1300 feet! Particularly with buses or trucks there would be a 98% passenger casualty factor, and was the main reason why the average automobile fatality rate in those days was about 150 per month!

Today the road of death still has its spark but with a lot less danger. Dare to enjoy and experience this road with many stops, picture spots, waterfalls, and much more in a 100% safe drive on a jeep 4x4. As we arrive you will discover a great world in a pleasant climate, scenery and absolutely unique attractions. This tour includes short treks, waterfalls, many citric fruits, coca leaves, coffee, bananas and many other plantations, a lot of Bolivian Agricultural facts, some fruit (direct from tree) tasting. Take some time to realx and enjoy paradise in Coroico, especially if its the right season! You may also get the chance to meet the small “Afro Bolivian” community who were originally brought by the Spanish as slaves to work in the Silver Mines of Potosi, but as they weren´t used to the altitude they were sent down to the lowlands of Coroico to work with fruits and coca. Come around and you will see why this is among the favorites of places to visit for tourists.

*Tips: during the months of March to November it is advisable you wear long sleeves and some insect repellent, an amazing fact here is that: Coroico lies over 1722 Mts or/ 5640 feet of elevation. Its weather is a bit Tropical and sometimes mosquitoes may come in very small numbers looking for some fresh blood. Consider there have been NO malaria cases here… or snakes, or piranas or Cayman (sorry!). This you will only be able to see deep in our amazon tour, read further to be informed about our magnificent amazon experiences …
