  • a lovely spot it is perhaps an hour outside bogota there are some small stalls the building is now operational. If in Bogota and 1 has time worth a visit.  more »
  • This place generates different feelings for its natural beauty but at the same time, to be a monument to the destruction of the environment. This is literally the cesspool of Bogotá and the municipalities adjacent to the River, from its source to its place of departure of the Savannah. This also place combines myths and legends Muisca with stories of terrifying suicides. A very interesting place to visit and take a memory more than as all are affected to our mother earth.

  • As I read in another view, spectacular scenery, but it is not a destination. If you're close, anda, diverts your way and visit it, so it is worth. But it is not even a good parking lot for Park and admire it. Driving from Bogota only to see it is not the best plan. Nearby there is to look at the reservoir of the Muna, that sucks, but bearable. There there where Park to admire it or anything tourist.

  • So.. Very beautifull. This is a maicen
  • That's a gorgeus place, truly unforgettable. Too bad it's poluted. Still worth a visit.
  • Besides bad smell, its a beautiful place to visit, just for take a good pictures on site.
  • 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.
