Trip Planner: South America / Colombia / Huila Department / Villavieja / Wildlife Areas / Desierto de la Tatacoa
Explore the dunes and rock formations at Desierto de la Tatacoa, a tranquil semi-arid desert away from the hustle and bustle of the big cities. Named after the sound a rattlesnake makes (even though there are none in the area), the desert has a large, dry, tropical ecosystem. Roam among the tall cactus plants and spot numerous wildlife species such as scorpions, turtles, eagles, and wildcats. Favorite activities here include camping, picnicking, or just enjoying the unusual landscape. Visit the observatory to view the stars and planets through a telescope, or stargaze on your own. A visit to Desierto de la Tatacoa represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Villavieja itinerary builder to plot your vacation.

Much better to go alone with guides. Even if they are in good shape, can rent a bicycle to explore the desert. Everything is very well guarded and security is very good. You get everything in the desert but best buy water before you get why in the desert sold it more expensive.View original
