Boyacá Travel Guide
Fodor's Pacific Northwest
Sleepy colonial towns, many originally settled by the pre-Columbian Muiscas, punctuate the rolling green hills and mountains of Boyacá, a region a few hours north of Bogotá. Charming communities such as Villa de Leyva and Paipa have central squares dominated by colonial churches. In this region you'll also find the cloud forest of Santuario de Fauna y Flora Laguna de Iguaque and the parched landscape of the Desierto de la Candelaria.
