Walk from Hostal Sol y Luna to Las Pozas del Rio Vagante (where there is nice bathing but also some dangerous currents and waterfalls) and back again, finishing in Coroico town centre.

May be ill-advised in the rainy season.

This route takes el camino a las pozas de Vagante, which is a dirt track wide enough for one car. Along this dirt track taxis bring people to the Vagantes pools and to Rio Negro also. However we mostly had the track to ourselves (apart from the rogueish canine companion who joined us near Casa Bonita in Coroico town centre and kept us company the whole way). I am sure there are other routes as well.
We kept exploration to a minimum when we reached Rio Vagante, but further investigation up or down the river would probably reveal more swimming areas and larger waterfalls.
This route brings you to a bridge, under which the river Vagante rushes down through a rocky fall. We crossed the bridge and turned left, and made our way down to the river there. We bathed carefully in the river which is strong and clear, and full of smooth rocks. After bathing we made our way back.
