Catedral de Sal

Beautiful completely carved in Salt Cathedral is unique in its kind and presents visitors a majesty unparalleled. 180 meters underground lies a place away from everyday life invites reflection, self-discovery and inner encounter with the spiritual part.

Reviewed By NCFamilyGuy - Greensboro, North Carolina

This is a Cathedral (technically, not exactly, a Cathedral but let's not quibble about technicalities) of salt, built in a salt mine. It's a stunning work, and without being irreverent in any way whatsoever a temple to ingenuity and capitalism. What to do with a salt mine when you extract salt and rock? Leave a tourist destination! The church, complete with the stations of the cross, is lovely. Exiting the church there are a variety of shops, 3D movie, spa, and snack shops. Our family left with a nativity scene of salt (which was later inspected and passed around in Atlanta Hartsfield). Tours are in Spanish and in English. And yes, it is really made of salt.

I had been staying in the nearby town of Villeta when I was reminded by friends of this place that I had first heard of through a program called Wild Colombia with Nigel Marven (Episode one of four). It was an easy location an easy an easy enough location to find. For those travelling from Bogotá‎ it is a very easy journey. There is a fairly regular private bus service from Bogotá‎ bus terminals. In recent times the main road has been resurfaced and widened. Travel time from Bogotá‎'s exterior to this location should be easily reachable inside one hour. However before hand the Enchanted Garden's website didn't offer usable location information. Emailing the listed email address resulted in no reply. However calling resulting in great and friendly information in Spanish. Arriving at the location there's parking on a public dirt road. The road is not busy and at the time of my visit (midday), parking was fine. Ringing the bell got a prompt welcome and brief guide along with a pamphlet giving some nice but general information on the garden and birds. We received an introduction from the owner whom's present a the property most days. The introduction was fine however it did just come across as impersonal, scripted and motionless. The owner obviously must be repeating this introduction many times everyday so it is understandable. She did take a brief opportunity to point out a few different species. The fee is overpriced compared to other attractions. But does offer richer Westerners a truly unforgettable experience. Viewing the Hummingbirds couldn't be any better. There's a stretch along the side of the house that is covered and separated from the birding garden. There's a bench to sit too. The bird feeders (filled with syrup) are so close they are almost an arms stretch away. The number and verity of birds is breathtaking. Photo opportunities are endless. Countless number of birds are coming and going. There are some rare species (smallest Hummingbird) are a little less common, so be ready with your camera to snap them. A small but advisable tip is the utilize your cameras burst mode. The birds move so fast it's impossible to take any meaningful picture without using your camera's burst mode. Another small tip is to stand at the end of the viewing stretch with your arms raised out slightly. I found that a few birds flew past between my body and arms, beautiful. Try not to use the whole time taking pictures, just watching a feeder for a few minutes will amaze you. During the visit I easily managed to be entertained and amazed for almost an hour. Children might find this a little difficult whilst remaining quite. It is a wonderful environment and clearly a functioning home for the owner. During my hour here, roughly a dozen or so people came and went. A wonderful opportunity to observe such wonderful birds in concentration. It's great even if you are not a bird enthusiast.

Parque Jaime Duque

A world of culture and amusement in one single place. Located in Tocancipa just 30 min from Bogota, is one of the best parks in Latin America. The attractions include various museums, a beautiful zoo, amusement rides, excellent restaurants, etc. The park belongs to a Foundation, profits are donated to charity and conservation programs of colombian species.

Beautiful landscaped, maintained with excellent detail and cleanliness, Parque Jaime Duque's theme is the travels and interests of its founder. The park is a collection of cultural, artistic, and natural themes from all around the world focusing on the Jaime Duque's career as a pilot for Avianca. There is an limited, but growing zoo with primarily Colombian and some other distinctive wildlife. Unlike American theme parks, the rides are relatively unspectacular, but still well-suited for young children primarily. The restaurant we visited was clean, reasonable and the food was well prepared. Attendants were friendly and obviously hard-working...focused on child safety on the rides and attraction areas. The replica Taj Mahal is the most obvious feature and is a beautiful structure. Inside is a cyclorama with 3-D dioramas explaining Colombian history. The entire park's education theme is the importance of caring for the environment. Many rare and near extinct Colombian flora is represented and the park beyond the developed area is considered a preserve. Good for families with young children and others who like beautiful grounds, Colombian themes, and is a good place to get away from the City yet still have some of its benefits. Probably not the best for active teens if they are looking for exciting rides and thrills.

Laguna el Tabacal

Reviewed By apayingcustomer27 - San Francisco

Less than an hour’s drive from Bogota through some truly beautiful countryside. Breakfast in a roadside cafe looking down on the clouds in the valley. The lake itself is beautiful, with lots of fish to watch and feed. You can’t get into the water as you will get very sick. It’s cheap to get in. We went here in the morning and to the spectacular Waterfalls nearby in the afternoon.

This beautiful church is located on the Comuneros Square in the heart of historic center.of Zipaquirá . It is the main church of the diocese. It is a distinctive 19th century church externally similar in design to some other known churches in Colombia. To finish it took over 100 years. Inside there are stately solemn columns and rather simple but pretty interior.
