Revision as of 06:45, 12 February 2017

Choachí is a small town East of Bogotá, in Cundinamarca. Located 1923 meters above see level, much lower than Bogotá and hence with milder weather.

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 over a mountain pass with superb views. The road is paved but has some large pot holes you need you to drive around and many road side stalls offering food and drink.

If you use a locally acquired GPS it may also route you Bogota-Ubaque-Choachi. This is also scenic but has a long stretch of mud track that is easier with a 4WD vehicle.

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 [3]. Sundays' entry is 20,000 pesos for adults. Hotel and restaurant services available.
