Playa Blanca, Boyaca

4.5
#1 of 10 in Outdoors in Boyaca Department
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.

    In the interior of the country, we have a beautiful beach of laguna de Tota. 4 h (approx.) located from Bogota, in the Department of Boyacá. It is a very nice, different and peaceful place to visit. Boat ride or you can dive into the cold water (hopefully a sunny day).

    It is a beautiful place to admire the cute scene, its landscape, its crystal clear waters, tranquility, and pure air. It is an excellent place to unwind, enjoy a ride on horseback along the banks of the dam, giving a water ride with jet sky or a return boat where the guides have a brief history of the dam and the region, enjoying the most of the field and its warm people kind and humble. It is also characterized by offering delicious trout which is mandatory to eat on the menu. I would certainly recommend the super... It is suggested to go well sheltered and take a rich water panela cheese hot either, since the weather is cold.

    A place that is worth knowing, is incredible to see a kind of beach per cold. There is that carry good coat already that venting too and if you are staying a while I recommend take food already does not seem so nice places to eat, and the only restaurant has held super full. But it is a place that deserves to be known.
