Coroico is located in the Yungas on the foothills of Cerro Uchumachi at an elevation of 1760 meters (5774 feet). Located between the dry, cold highlands and the steamy lowlands, it is said the weather is like perpetual Spring there.
The Coroico area is excellent for agriculture (citrus, coffee, tobacco, etc.) and is one of the primary coca growing regions. It is certainly a quiet town and a great place to just relax. In the picture, the town of Coroico is on the right. The world's most dangerous road can be seen on the left.
To get from La Paz to Coroico, you go through La Cumbre. It is a 4800 meter pass over the Cordillera Real, so the snowy mountains are even higher.
- Pros:Great weather and views; peaceful place
- Cons:Dangerous roads to get there
- In a nutshell:No better place to relax
If you stay at the Hotel Esmeralda, you could have a nice buffet lunch and enjoy this view while you are dining. more travel advice
If you have kids, you could take them to the playground and have this view when you stay at the Hotel Esmeralda. more travel advice
