Day 1 Bogotá - Villavicencio - Macarena

La Macarena Natural Reserve is situated in the southwest of the Meta department. It represents a unique slice of biogeography, and is a meeting point of the territories of the Amazon and of the Orinoco. One of the best-known attractions is the astonishing river “Caño Cristales”, commonly called “The River of Five Colors,” “The Liquid Rainbow” and “The Most Beautiful River in the World” because of the algae that produces bright colors like red, yellow, green and blue at the bottom of the river, which give it a unique appearance.

Activities:

  • Our 3-hour overland trip from Bogotá to the Meta department starts around 3:00 am from our meeting point. We leave Bogotá heading south towards Villavicencio, capital of Meta. On arrival, transfer to the airport and flight to the “La Macarena” mountain range, landing on a grass runway.
