This town in the Yungas, the geographical transition between La Paz on the altiplano and the Amazonian rainforest, is known for the death-defying dirt road connecting it to La Paz, but it is also a pleasant spot to relax and enjoy the verdant scenery.
Coroico is in Bolivia and is a good place to spend a night before heading up to La Paz, or further into the Jungle. Because of the lower elevation, the weather is quite nice by comparison to La Paz, and has a resort-like feel to it.

COROICO - THE DEATH ROAD (FULL DAY)
The bike tour through one of the world's most dangerous roads starts at 7:00 am at El Solario Hostel. We meet up for breakfast there and try the equipment on. After breakfast we ride the Company's vehicle up to La Cumbre at 4700 m .a.s.l, where we will start the bike descend of more than 3500 m . for 5 hours approximately. The first part of the ride is on a paved road and rather cold. After an hour, we get to the former drug check post known as Unduavi, from where it is already possible to notice the nature and climate shift. During the ride it is possible to make various stops, to take a break, pictures and have some food. The highlight of this part is the landscape. We keep descending riding under waterfalls and enjoying amazing sceneries. After about 5 hours we reach our destination in the small village of Yolosa at 1800, in a sub tropical environment. This is where our biking adventure comes to an end. Then we ride the van up to the beautiful town of Coroico for approximately ½ an hour. Once in Coroico, we will enjoy a buffet lunch to have 2 spare hours to swim, walk around, or simply relax. At about 4:00 pm, we start our ride back to La Paz arriving at about 8:00 pm.
