In the afternoon, transfer to Hotel Paipa (or other hotel of same category). The Hotel overlooks a lake. Paipa is famous for its agreeable climate and thermal baths, the ideal way to relax after a hike. One night stay including American breakfast.

Day 3

After a filling breakfast, a we begin our tour of Boyaca, a region full of historic interest and spectacular landscapes and the witness to many of the battles fought during the notorious Wars of Independence. We visit “Pantano de Vargas” where another of the most decisive battles against Spanish settlers was waged and won. The trip continues to “Casona del Salitre” which in 1974 was declared a national monument. We then go south towards the “Lago de Tota”, Sogamoso and Duitama. Our cross-country trip continues until we arrive in Villa de Leyva, one of the most enchanting colonial towns in Latin America. 2 nights stay including American breakfast.

Day 4

In the morning, we will stroll through Villa de Leyva, visiting the central plaza and all colonial attractions. In the afternoon, visit to the Dominican “Ecce Homo” convent, constructed in the XVII century, followed by a visit to a fossil discovered just outside the town, which has been dated at over 150 million years. The rest of the afternoon is free for tourists to walk around the town and take in the charm of Villa de Leyva for themselves.
(Instead of visiting Villa de Leyva and surroundings, there will be the option on this day of a whole day outing to Iguaque National Park).
