La Macarena

A gateway to one of the world's most fascinating rivers, La Macarena enjoys a special place in the heart of Colombian nature lovers. The town of around 4,000 people sits in close proximity to Caño Cristales, a multicolored river highlighted by rare and vibrant varieties of algae. The river undoubtedly generates the bulk of tourism to La Macarena, and mountainous national parks and equatorial jungles only add to the area's appeal. Unfortunately, the town's past has been marred by gang violence and political instability. La Macarena is in Meta Department.
