Learn how this plant has greatly influenced your life, even if you’ve never seen. See how the coca plant radically changed the world we know !
“Coca Wasi” a Quechua word meaning the House of Coca, is the only place in Bolivia where you can meet a real coca plantation, considered sacred by almost all Andean cultures. It is located near Coroico in the Andean foothills, stretching from the Amazon, known as the Yungas. Here, the Incas cultivated the coca plant since five thousands years ago.
You can learn to “akullicar” or chew coca, as did the Incas or know the stimulatory effect of this plant savoring our coca sweets, coca liqueur, coca flour, and other legal derivatives of the coca plant.
Agriculture of the sacred plant of the Incas is a knowledge acquired through millennia, but now at your fingertips just minutes from the town of Coroico at two hours from La Paz.
How to arrive?
Coca Wasi is located near Coroico (two hours by bus from La Paz by the New paved road) . If you come by bike, like many, you will see on your right, just minutes before the end of your journey through the Andes, the Historic House of Coca.
