#3 of 6 in Outdoors in Villa de Leyva
Take some time away from the hustle and bustle of the city by visiting Parque Ecologico La Periquera, nature reserve featuring a lush forest and a number of picturesque waterfalls. Bring your camera if you wish to snap images of the pristine cascades, and if you're feeling adventurous, try ziplining or bungee jumping. Due to the reserve's high altitude, many visitors find themselves drinking more water than usual--stock up on beverages before you arrive.

  • The waterfall that is very close to villa de leyva and easy to reach either by car or bus, is very nice, very spectacular however before not charged entry, you could camp, and do other activities. Now they're taking a value of 20,000 pesos per person supposedly that it must be accompanied by a guide and a certain doctor, however I think that the waterfall is a secure site, is 10 minutes from the highway and travel is simple then the value of income seems exaggerated, because besides the path is very short, is not the big thing.
