The Tatacoa desert is in the “top 10 things to do in Colombia” of every travel guide book and most of the travel blogs.
I don’t agree with it, and I consider the La Guajira desert as a much better experience. However, I have to admit that the most famous part of the Tatacoa desert is quite photogenic. Hence, all the Instagrammers running there to take the perfect shot.
You can add it in your Colombia circuit if it’s on your way, but you shouldn’t make a large detour to visit it.
Once in Neiva, take a bus in the direction of Villavieja. Then, you will be able to find a Tuk-tuk to drive you to the Tatacoa desert.
