The region of Boyaca and around is mostly located within the Eastern Cordilleras. Between the old indigenous civilization like the Muisca and the ferocious battles for independence, the place is full of history and tales. However, don’t expect to discover many ruins.
Boyaca offers many hikes possibilities, and it’s perfect if you want to escape the city of Bogota for a few days. Discover the fantastic paramo of Iguaque and Oceta and take on Playa Blanca Beach, in front of the vast Tota lake.
Then wander among the narrow and shady streets of Mongui and Villa de Leyva, two lovely colonials towns. And take the occasion to buy local handicrafts in Raquira to bring back home.
