Cundinamarca : Choachí
Jump to: navigation, search

Default Banner.jpg

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.

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.


Main plaza, clean and quiet.


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



Surprisingly there is a great Swiss restaurant in town, and a small competitor in the outskirts. Try the rabbit or goulash. Restaurante Suizo. Daily 11:00 a.m.- 4:00p.m. Call2 No. 4 – 09. Just 2 blocks to the left of the main church in town.Phone +57 1 8486 065



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