Playa Blanca, Boyaca

4.4
#3 of 8 in Parks in Boyaca Department
Beach Nature / Park
Tread on the soft white sand and dip your toes in the waters of Lake Tota at Playa Blanca. At 3,015 m (9,892 ft) above sea level, this ranks as the highest beach in the northern hemisphere and one of the highest in the world. It enjoys popularity among visitors for extreme motor sports. If you're not one of them, you can take a boat tour out on the lake for a little local history of the place, which is surrounded by a forest preserve. Bring a warm layer to combat the cooler climate here. While you may not get too much sunbathing in, the views of the surrounding green hills compensate. Try the fish at the nearby restaurant.

  • The beach is very nice, long cold, but it is worthwhile to see the contrast between beach with white sand and Lake. you have to bring food, because there is a single shop and care is not very good, there is variety to eat, and the day we went there was no cheese (only had brown sugar water)

  • We arrived at white beach with my girlfriend one Sunday at about 9:30 am, there was still parking but it was already quite full. It can be reached by two access roads, one of which is quite destapada while the other has uncovered paths and others in service. The camping area was full so it roasts were confined to a tight space. The beach and the lagoon are beautiful, immense and admirable. Bathrooms really leave much to be desired despite the fact that they charge $500, old, damaged and not so clean. The activities that you can do there are not many. Jetsky, horses, ATVs and boat tour. In addition to a good walk along the trails. It is a site that should be known by the immensity of it, however tourism as in many control no other places so it's advisable to go in the off-season. Anyway is a place that you should go and admire, the people of Boyaca is very friendly.

  • I thought that it would make more cold at night, but the temperature was pleasant. Cold but I think not less than 10 °. The site is nice, during the day there is enough sunshine so you must use enough sunscreen. Bathroom 2 - 3 minute walk from the camping area, $500 service health, $2,000 shower. In general clean bathrooms. Vehicle access fee: $4,000; payment tent: $10,000 carp small (up to 4 persons) $20,000 carp family (more than 4 people). Tied wood: $10,000 is expensive for the amount of firewood. I recommend to get in peoples are before you get to the Lake. Pets can be carried to this site. In this regard: in site where we camped there were 2 groups of people with pets: on the left side facing the lagoon of the Academy Smart Dogs, very outstanding dogs that were not to bother first and foremost outstanding pick their puppies feces and others. On the other side of Bogota Antarctica, well cute puppies but the same owners from the feces of dogs to others, not had nothing to do, we had to clean. In addition to music until dawn. If a person goes to a site secluded camping it is because he wants a bit of peace, but unfortunately there are people without culture and education that don't you bother others. There are jet skis to ride on the lagoon: $30,000 travel of approx. 5 minutes, $40,000 and $60,000. I thought it was expensive, travel is not by time but point to point. The $30,000 takes approximately 5 minutes. All the time accompanies you on the bike instructor. Seems expensive to me since I have paid in high season in Cartagena $50,000 per 30 minutes. In general it is very nice, quiet and I recommend it to rest. Worse, the lack of culture of the people...
