Yungas Road outside of La Paz is a tourist destination for the thrill seeker. It is also known as "Death Road" because when it was still trafficked by cars and trucks, it was common for those vehicles to go over the edge and into the valley below. It's now almost exclusively a bike route that features an 11,900-foot drop in elevation over a day's ride of 40 miles.

We are taking a bus trip from Cusco (Peru) to La Paz (Bolivia) that allows us to stop at Lake Titicaca along the way. Lake Titicaca is the world's highest lake, and it's rich in indigenous cultural experiences. Through a company called Peru Hop we plan to use the pass to stop in Puno (Lake Titicaca on the Peru side) as well as Copacabana (Lake Titicaca on the Bolivia side) before making it to La Paz.
Parque Nacional Tayrona is equal parts beach and jungle and 100% beautiful. A day trip includes an hour-long costal hike and a stop at the beach followed by a trip into the forest to look for rare animals like monkeys, eagles, bats, and condors. The day trip is led by a spanish-speaking guide.
