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!

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!

This place is sad. I remember the amazing tales that surround this area and the waterfall itself, but all of that is destroyed in seconds when you stand there and smell how filthy the Bogota river is. If my memory serves me well this is...More
