About 56 ml from La Paz, in the heart of the Yungas region, the town of Coroico is a sort of link between the Andes and Amazonia .

My suggestion:
Coroico is the starting point of many hikes that are quite easy. Lace up your hiking boots and forward march!
My review

During my trip to Bolivia , on leaving La Paz for far away Amazonia, I made a first stop at the pretty town of Coroico. Let me tell you all about it.

Nestled on a hill, Coroico is at the heart of the Yungas region. It is a Bolivian region that is a little apart. It is populated by Afro-Andeans since the time when Africans were sent here as slaves to work in the mines. Today in Coroico, we come across beautiful, old, black women wearing a bowler hat and dressed in the traditional Bolivian costume. The Yungas is also the cradle of Bolivian music. I am even positive that you all know the world wide hit that was created here. Yes, the Lambada comes from the Yungas! In the evening sit on a patch of pavement and enjoy a succulent dish of chicken and chips. Absolutely delicious.
