Pozos Azules, Villa de Leyva

Swim in the blue or green lakes to cool off. The area does not have much shade and you will be almost always in direct sunlight, so plan accordingly. Head out early to avoid the tourist rush.

  • A place at least strange, difficult to classify, but worth visiting if you pass from Villa de Leyva and you're staying more than one day, partly because the city itself does not offer very much. It feels like you stepped back in fear, but don't expect great things.

  • It is a quiet place where you have an excellent view of landscapes of the area. Really the place has not much to offer but not about Wells of crystal-clear to observe, you can swim in them. To make the ride worthwhile ideally reach using alternate transportation that allows one to see other things (horse, ATV, etc) because otherwise the place has not much to offer. I have to pay at the entrance so that it takes into account.

  • It is a private property, cost $6000. Nice weather (it was June when I visited it). Really nice place for resting
  • Beautiful place to visit, totally worth it. Swimming is not allowed to preserve the lakes, the entrance is COP $5.000 per person. There only reason why I did not give it 5 stars is because the place is not accessible for old people or people with mobility issues, there is a 800 meters walk to the lakes downhill, so the way back is uphill! There is a road to the lakes but car access is not permitted.
  • are super beautiful, not is if you can swim but people then gets your feet to water still that this something cold and it can rain. You must be careful when walking along the shore of the lakes and are 5 in total, if you explore them see all. House one is different and I thought it was cute to sit and have a snack or something. There are 500 cop and are clean bathrooms.

  • They are artificial wells and when it rains become cloudy colour by Earth and sediments around the Central magnificent. When I went, there were only two linda wells and two other water as of pond. To walk a while and see a nice landscape okay, but wells are not otherworldly.

  • The place is very nice, but is valued over. It has 2 natural grounds and one that seems artificial. They charge for entry but no guides or maintenance. This type of attraction is usually free.
