3.9
#2 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.

  • You can visit the waterfall periqueria via Villa de Leyva - Arcabuco km. 13 out there taking the detour that leads to the waterfall the periquera, the site is interesting to walk and go to practice extreme sports, it is visited by many local and foreign tourists , however there are some waterfalls in the stream of Gachantivá which are much more interesting and more clean.
