  • A must visit point located about 1 hour from Bogota. Sometimes the river is smelly at some parts and you can see a foam produces by the contamination but the locals are working hard to preserve this natural wonder. The visit to the museum costs $9000 COP with a 40 minutes your and free parking.
  • From there you will have 400 meters of height to observe the landscape towards School tables. The beautiful waterfall shows with its fall of water the force with which it hits the water on the rocks. The food that accompanies the vision is simply delicious.
  • Parking was COL $2000 with FREE entry! There is a small restaurant nearby if you’d like to stop for a drink. However, be sure to spray yourself down with bug spray before existing the car, the mosquitoes are definitely swarming.
  • Beauty in Colombia
  • Not smelly anymore. The view is fantastic, I'll go back again to visit the museum.
