    There is really not that much to do in Coroico except relax and enjoy the views. This picture was taken sitting on the end of my bed looking out on my balcony.

    You can even get Mexican food in Coroico. I did not eat at the Bamboos Cafe, preferring the excellent buffet at the Hotel Esmeralda instead. Probably better that I waited to get back to Albuquerque and the green chile there.

    If you're heart is not strong enough to withstand the biketrip down Death Road, then you can still be a deardevil and take a van/bus down the same road :). It's dirt cheap (under $1 USD per hour). The ride can take as little as 4-5 hours, but usually takes more during the rainy season.

Coroico Warnings and Dangers

    As I said earlier, the road was coined the Death Road back in 1997 because a study determined that it was the most dangerous road on Earth. In fact, there is at least one fatal accident per month! Just look at the photo to see a 3 week old accident. A truck carrying wood fell from a cliff killing everyone aboard. It's a sad fact of life in this road so make sure you ride with a driver you can trust.

Coroico Off The Beaten Path

  • Trailhead to Cerro Uchumachi

    The trailhead to Cerro Uchumachi is further up the hill behind El Calvario. It is a five hour round trip to the top (so I hear). I think the sign was at 2350 meters and Cerro Uchumachi at 2450 meters. I did not do the hike. Besides being too lazy, the clouds were covering the peak and impairing the views.

  • View from El Calvario

    You get a great view of Coroico from the grassy area around El Calvario. That is the Hotel Esmeralda "parking lot" with the one vehicle at the bottom of the trail.

    On commence a La Paz avec l'agence de Velo... on part en mini bus jusqu'a la Cumbre...4700m et on monte sur nos v?lo pour faire le debut de la piste qui est en asphalte pour 1h environ... et par la suite nous rencontrons la fameuse route de la mort avec ses paysage a couper le souffle....(ceux qui on le vertige s'abstenir) c'est que que l'on appelle une DROPE de 90 degres.... plusieurs chutes de bus on fait des accidents mortels... mais le tout ?tant de descendre jusqu'a 1200m Coroico est le point final de cette excursion....epoustouflant pour ceux qui aime faire du plein air. Et en Bolivie quoi de mieux.

  • On the Yungas, road from...

    On the Yungas, road from Coroico to Caranavi is a beauty steel nerves test (it has been reported as the most dangerous on the world -drive by the left hand-). The coming back by Coripata is exiting and extraordinary (take a whole day to taste it quietly).
