Playa Blanca

Reviewed By Felipe C - Bogota, Colombia

The Playa Blanca beach is something different and out of your imagination! This sandy white beach is not really suited to sun bathe due to Boyaca's cold temperatures but it's still great for enjoying a nice view of the green landscape and practicing extreme water sports. Though far from other main towns, this beautiful beach is worth the visit.
Fun Fact: this beach is 3,015 meters above sea level, not only one of the highest in Latin America, but also one of the highest in the whole Northern Hemisphere!

Puente de Boyaca

Reviewed By astroarchitect - Long Island, New York

A bit more interesting for history buffs than your run of the mill tourist, but a beautiful location in the countryside outside of Bogota. Site of the final battle for Colombian independence from the Spanish back in 1810. The battle was supposed to have taken place at the site of the bridge there. There is an eternal flame and a beautiful monument on the hillside nearby. Lovely view of the surroundings from there. For most people that are not into historic sites like this, in my opinion, it is a bit too far to come out of Bogota soley for this attraction. However, if you are driving in this direction or on your way to visit the town of Villa de Leyva, it is a worthwhile stop to stretch and see the memorial. There is a restaurant at the site, but was closed during our visit. The lower parking area and eternal flame are wheelchair accessible, but I did not notice if the paths up to the memorial on the hill were.

Reviewed By Mark B - Morristown, New Jersey

We were in town during the holiday weekend of June 18 when we visited this place (sit down location) after having dinner at a nearby restaurant. This place is special. Even if you are not a big fan of chocolate, this place is worth the visit. The decor will bring you back in time, the staff is very attentive, and the desserts are delicious. I would definitely return to this chocolate heaven in the future.

Our best experience in Colombia so far. Not a huge tourist hub, a small hidden gem in Villa de Leyva. It is a privately owned Observatory managed by passionate astronomers. With the bright skies of Villa de Leyva, the whole sky was easily observable.

La visita en la reserva Natural Pueblito Antigui esta llena de sensaciones entre el orgullo del Boyacense y la protección ambiental. Excelente para aprender como se preserva un ecosistema tan rico como el de la Laguna de Tota (espejo de agua más grande de Colombia) mezclado con el valor de una cultura campesina arraiga con su entorno. excelente para compartir en familia y un escenario perfecto para la fotografía.
