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