Chicaque Nature Park

Looking for a perfect romantic gateway less than an hour from Bogota? Don't look any further... Chicaque!

Stunning view over the valley

An amazing park with stunning views over the mountains, a lush vegetation, waterfalls and large varieties of birds to watch (more than 300) => coming soon a special feature about bird watching in Colombia, the country with the most species in the world!

You can rent a little private chalet with chimney (better to bring your wood as it's very humid there), stay in a dorm in the refuge or even camp in the valley (bring some jumpers it can get fresh at night!)
A valley surrounded by beautiful cliffs
The Refuge will provide really nice food in the large circular dining room
with a large fireplace in the middle. It has a balcony with stunning views of the valley of San Antonio de Tequendama.  There is even a guitarist in the evening. Very romantic!

=> Chicaque includes 18 km of footpaths through seven types of forest, more than 300 species of birds and 20 of mammals.

Getting there

- By taxi or with a driver, it is dificult 
as the driver will need a special authorisation to go pass the village of Soacha, so many cabs will simply refuse to go and you could be stuck for hours before finding one who will accept. There should be some buses from Terminal Sur but you should call the refuge to get advice on the best way to get there from where you are.

- There is a 30 mns walk to go down to the valley, a great hike but you should make sure your girlfriend didn't come in high heals! Also, this is an impressive descent (they say almost as big of the one of Montserate). So it's OK to go down but remember you will have to go back up! You could still rent a horse if you feel it's a little ambitious. They also offer a car service but it's absolutely out of price : 60.000 COP! (you could still  try to convince fellow hikers to come with you and share the cost)
