4.0
#2 of 8 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.

    Before it was a nice walk free. At the time are located closed by a demand (someone was hurt making a high-risk sport). It doesn't seem fair that people may not visit a waterfall because of a poorly managed company.

    We came to this site looking for green, silent landscapes to enjoy nature. The Trek allows you to have direct contact with nature, if who want extreme sports can do it. Near the restaurant there is a viewpoint where you can take good photographs since a beautiful landscape looks!

    The Park is nice there is a short path has hard masomenos an hour suitable for all audiences, not much that do there but the place is beautiful, the way to make the hike is not well signposted although it is difficult to miss the truth, don't wait a super long walk, or a site that is close with nature contact because it is not the case However the site is nice and I think that they are making an effort to take care of it or keep it.
