Getting To and Away From Coroico

Bus or Camion

Coroico is now served by the new(ish), asphalted (most of the way) La Paz-Coroico road, making the trip safer and quicker than before. In Coroico, the bus terminal is west of the town centre and deals mainly with transport to and from La Paz. Minibuses leave approximately every half hour for the three hour journey and cost a little over $2. There are also quicker ‘mini-vans’ that take about two hours, cost $3.50 and leave with the same frequency.

From La Paz, buses leave from the Villa Fátima district, next to the old petrol station, from around 8 a.m. to 5.30 p.m. There are also camiones leaving from the same area.

For Rurrenabaque, buy your ticket at the bus terminal for one of the early afternoon buses from La Paz to Rurrenabaque. The transport passes through Yolosita, not Coroico, but the bus companies will provide a mini-bus to take you there (included in the price). The journey is a least 15 hours, sometimes a lot more, and costs about $11. There are also camiones that pass through Yolosita heading north to the Amazon.

For Caranavi, you’ll need to go to Yolosa first, from where there is regular transport for the three hour journey.

For Chulumani, you can take a La Paz bound bus and get off at Unduavi, at the turn-off for the south Yungas. There is also the more adventurous route via Coripata – see Chulumani for more details.

 

 

Boat

Turbus-Totaï sell tickets for a three-day jungle tour by boat from Coroico to Rurrenabaque – visit www.deep-rainforest.com for more details.

 

Bike

One of the most popular ways to get to Coroico is to take a mountain bike tour down the old La Paz-Coroico track, ‘the world’s most dangerous road’. The trail descends from 4,760 meteres at La Cumbre summit just outside La Paz to the village of Yolosa at 1,100 meters near Coroico. If you want to stay overnight in or around Coroico, you should be able to leave your bags in the minibus of your tour company. Pick a reputable operator in La Paz for this one-day ride through stunning scenery.
