Contents

Understand

The road leading to Choachí is the main reason to visit. Beautiful Andean views from your departure. Also, since the road leaves Bogotá right from downtown, you avoid the horrific traffic going to the towns North and West of Bogotá.

Get in

Coordinates 04º 31’52” of North latitude and 73º 55’33” of West longitude.


From Bogota to Choachi, it takes about an hour driving. For 7,000 pesos, you can take a small charter bus. The buses DO NOT leave from the main bus terminal in Bogota - do not go there. You will have to find a bus station on Avenida Calle 6 at Av Caracas, across from a police station.

Get around

Walking should suffice to see town. The hot springs are on a dirty road and a cab ride is in order for most tourists.

See

Main plaza, clean and quiet.

Do

Hot Springs are available at Termales Santa Mónica [1]. Sundays' entry is 20,000 pesos for adults. Hotel and restaurant services available.

Buy

Eat

Drink

There is an abundance of small restaurants and bars along the main street. Leaving town towards Bogota there is also a BBQ restaurant with clay oven and excellent views over the valley and mountains.

Sleep

Hotel available at Termales Santa Mónica [3] a 5 min drive from town.
