A few hours from the capital, you can visit the Laguna de Guatavita, an ancient indigenous site belonging to the Muisca community. Or head to Chingaza National Park to enjoy the “paramo” (a regional, treeless ecosystem) and visit the Siecha lagoons, Chicaque Park or the Salt Catheral in Zipaquira.

Explore the world of Colombian cowboys. Admire the dramatic sunsets, glorious rivers like Caño Cristales, and the tasty beef of the country’s eastern plains. Colombia’s eastern plains present a world filled with promise and adventure.
