  • It is a nice place, shame that it smells so ugly, the landscape is wonderful and I love the House with all the magic and mysticism that exists.

  • This place is divided in two attractions, the waterfall "El Salto de Tequendama" and "Museum Tequendama" House (open weekends), first say that it corresponds to the riverbed of the Río Bogotá which is totally contaminated and at times expels odor nauseous, evidence of the lack of environmental awareness of the inhabitants of the municipalities where this takes place and that is in the process of recovery; the second, stands that it is currently administered by a foundation that works to recover environmental and culturally the region of the Salto de Tequendama. It is worthwhile to support them!

  • This is a really nice go to. The view is awesome. Also there is a Hotel/Museum next to it with an really interesting history. To get in the Hotel, you need to pay 8000COP / 3USD and you will have some guide guys telling you the history of the Hotel. Also, they try to explain was is going on with Bogotá River and all the work they are doing to recovery it (it is contaminated right now). There, you will find an informal restaurant with a excellent view. Try to go covered if it's raining because it's really cold. If you drive to this place, there is a really small parking. So, my recommendation: Use public transportation.
  • 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.
  • Very beautiful place. But: dear people of Bogota! The contamination is terrible,the water is dirty and smelling bad. This city needs urgently an effective environment friendly goverment. It would be also good, if there would be enough parking space nearby.
  • Nice place but don't go when it's raining or overcast condition
  • Awesome place to see, especially of the creek is running well, the waterfall can be quite beautiful.
