    The jump is beautiful and you must add the old hotel which now operates as a museum thanks to an ecological Foundation's work and the contribution of embassies. Can be a guided tour of the interior of the hotel, whose views toward the jump are incredible! In addition (although don't count on the visit) site has a halo of mystery by numerous suicides that occurred in the area of the jump. When we were there was no odor produced by the Bogota river pollution. Safety pin!

    A boring tour, a wasted House, the story of Roberto Arias Pérez that he does not care, a total ignorance of our indigenous history. The $7,000 more wasted in the world, even the coffee of the entry is rich. A guide without preparation. Anyway... If things continue as well managed is better than not entering the TOUR, referring his talk!

    For those who aun5no know the place is located on the road that leads from Bogotá via tables of the school on the southern highway, those who go by car have to pay an estimated toll of $10,000, the place can be seen on the road, is a good overview although I do not recommend it for those who do not tolerate bad smells since by all the way up to au target feels loa fetidos laa odours wastewater

    The waterfall itself is truly breathtaking but it's quite sad to see that the Colombian people have let the natural beauty of the place start to die. The water that flows over this beautiful wonderful it is actually sewage from Bogota and you can smell it quite strongly as you drive up to the waterfall :-( but it is still a very nice view if you have the time to make it do so!

    The view itself it's amazing really pretty but the place is ugly old and dirty they should take better care of it nevertheless if you are going to pass it through you should definitely stop for 10mins and take a pic

Where to stay in Bogota

Many visitors to Bogota stay in La Candelaria, a colonial-era neighborhood in the city center where you can find plenty of decent hostels and mingle with tourists from around the globe. Staying in this area also puts you within walking distance of the city's major museums and best nightlife options. If you prefer to sleep in a quieter area and visit this busy district during the day, consider accommodations in the northern section of the city, which includes the upscale neighborhood Zona T.
