Lovely place where you can see the nature. There is contamination but local people is working on to make it better. Great ecological work. Beautiful old house that used to be a castle. So much history!

Parking is limited, but most people just pull off the side of the road. There are lots of cool roadside eateries set up all along the highway. The view is really remarkable, and there are great views from multiple points besides the main hotel vista....More

Located about hour and a half southeast of the city, this natural wonder gives you a break from Bogota's stressful lifestyle! Get away from the "trancones" (traffic jams) and enjoy this simple, but welcoming landmark...Enjoy!

The ride from Bogota to Salto included beautiful scenery along windy mountain roads. The waterfall is okay, but nothing great. Sad to see such polluted water in such a beautiful country.
