As soon as I went down by bike i thought "I would do this again right away!". It was just amazing, going down was taking around 2 hours andthoug we were travelling on the budget, I believe the money was spent in the best way possible. The views you having and a fun and thrill by from going down are... More

I was a little sceptical of doing this popular touristy ride. However after 5 months of travelling South America it was a highlight - definitely recommend!

Definitely happy with our decision to just get the local bus to Coroico rather than doing a mountain bike tour. If you are on a budget like us then it is a great option. You get to enjoy the views of the region for between 20 and 30 Bs. Plus the way the minibus drivers overtake, you get just as... More

Before visiting Bolivia, I read about bicycling on this Death Road('El Camino de la Muerte'). Description like ' the world’s most dangerous road in 1995, with an estimated 200 to 300 people killed on this road every year’ made me very scary. The name itself promotes this. I thought, I will do something else in La Paz while my colleagues... More

Great day with the 3 absolutly nice Guides/Drivers from Barracuda. You really cant do it better. For 600 Bolivianos you get excellent gear, a nice ride, pictures, a shirt, excellent lunch buffet at a place were you can use the pool..

Very cool to do this road by bike. But please, don't just take a cheap company. We did, and the bikes were dodgy. Tour guide was just biking, nothing else. Food was bad. Still: great views, great biking and a real thrill.

Biking has never been my cup of tea - in fact it's a deeply rooted fear of mine but I was determined not to let it stop me. The yungas road is an incredibly beautiful road and well worth the trip. It's definitely ok if your a beginner of mountain biking to do this trip however be prepared to be... More

Some of the most incredible vistas in all of South America on this route. Starting in chilly cloud forests at high altitude and cycling down to humid amazon jungle really has to be experienced to be believed... do not miss it!

The views going down are amazing especially as the scenery and landscape changes so much from mountain to jungle. I ended up being the slowest in my group because I wanted to appreciate the views. The tour was one of the most expensive things we did in Bolivia but it is worth it to spend more money and go with... More

I did this road on motorbike and without an agency. It was awesome! You do feel the adrenaline when driving near the cliffs. The landscape is just... TOP! It's a MUST DO IT in a lifetime.
