My GF and her 16 YO daughter and I plan to travel to VDL along with her BOG sister and three teen-age children. All are Colombians except myself. I understant VDL is noted for a dark nightime sky and is popular with astronomy buffs. We will all stay at Charleys Place near the Usaquin RR station and Santa Ana Occidental mall in BOG from 4/17 to 4/21 and would like to be in VDl for 2-3 nights via bus during the mid-week.
Any suggestions for Hotel or house rental for the 7 of us? Private baths and central location for walking around would be nice.
Any hints for a dark sight for observing that might be popular with others? Usually good astronomy sites are out in the boondocks, so safety and travel is a consideration.
I noticed a suggestion to take the Transmileneo to the north portal and minibus from there to VDL, still true?
I also plan to contact the Colombian Astronomical Society for info too.
This will be my fith visit to COL and we are all looking forward to the trip.
