In recent decades, the Chapare province has become a haven for illegal cultivation of the
cocaleros. The law has since been changed by a deal that was struck between Evo Morales (a former coca activist and the country's first indigenous President (2006-2019)) and former President Carlos Mesa. This deal permits the region to grow a limited amount of coca every year .
Chapare Province is divided into three municipalities which are further subdivided into cantons.
