Welcome to Chapare Region


The Chapare region is heavily populated with highland campesinos (subsistence farmers) who emigrated here in the 1970s and turned the region into Bolivia’s main source of coca grown for the manufacture of cocaine. (Yungas coca, on the other hand, makes up the bulk of what Bolivians themselves chew, make into tea etc.) Subsequent eradication attempts by the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) made the region unstable, and Morales' government expelled the DEA in 2008.
