Parque Natural Chicaque Reviews
This is great nature place a little outside Bogota. The park is beautiful and has an awesome variety of birds including humming birds. Excellent restaurant in the park with lot of food options. Be... more »
This was our favorite thing that we did when we were in Bogota. It's such a beautiful place and since it's Colombia, everything was super cheap. The park entrance fee was around $US 4.50/person... more »
Wonderful. So close to bustling Bogotá, yet so peaceful and harmonious. I was hoping for a nice drive though the country side, but the urban sprawl stretches to within 3-4 km of the entrance. Despite that, when you're in the park, you're in another world. I would classify this hike as intermediate. It's mostly easy, but people with mobility issues will not be comfortable at all in many sections. The gorgeous hut at the bottom serves good food and sublime empanadas. The return jeep seems to come when it wants. We were told it would arrive 10-15 minutes after we bought our tickets, but it was more like +30 minutes.
Beautiful park but very mismanaged. They told us the horses or jeep that brings you back only runs a few times a day . The map is terrible too. So expect to spend longer there or go with the tour.
