Going to Yolosa

Yolosa was the nearest village to La Senda Verde, and so was the place to go if you wanted to eat or drink anything from the ‘outside’. Generally speaking it was for drinks out (usually for leaving drinks if a volunteer was leaving) – although you could buy cheap chicken dinners there….(not always recommended πŸ™‚ ). Sometimes people went to Coroico for the twin delights of pizza/burger and wi-fi access – but that was a taxi ride away, and those two items were not especially attractive to us during only a two week stay! Yolosa was only a 20 minute walk or so away, and we ended up there twice for leaving drinks. There was only really one venue option – but it was rather good! πŸ™‚ Two large outdoor picnic tables outside a small shop that sold bottles of beer and snacks! πŸ™‚

The other reason besides beer-drinking to go to Yolosa, was to buy water or snacks. If you could get a 45 minute break, that was enough time to get to Yolosa and back to buy supplies.

One of the bad things about La Senda Verde, is that they don’t provide you with any drinking water – so you have to keep buying water from them πŸ™ It was not especially cheap, and so it was cheaper to buy it in Yolosa – so that was the main reason for most daytime visits there. You could also pick up some between-meal snacks if you desired.

The road to Yolosa was actually VERY scenic, so that was a good enough reason to take a stroll there anyway! πŸ™‚
