  • Although there isn't much to do, if there is no mist is vera well but it would be better if the hotel is always open and so one to see the view from the hotel

  • It is a nice place with a thousand stories to tell, worth a go, they teach you how to care for the environment and show you the reality of the pollution, super recommended...

  • It is sad to see a place that should have be very beautiful for years, is now affected by the pollution. Although the lookout House is now converted into a Museum and made efforts to recover this beautiful place, it hurts to see how the man's hand and the lack of awareness towards environmental care, destroy such emblematic places. Being in front of this impressive waterfall (black and dead) makes a call to think about the role that we play against the care of our planet.

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.
