Getting There & Away

Most package tours include transportation to La Macarena Airport by charter or schedule flight from Bogotá, Medellín or Villavicencio, though it's perfectly possible to book your own transportation and arrange your tour to begin at the airport.

Easy Fly offers direct flights from Bogotá three times a week (COP$495,000) in high season (July to November). Alternatively, get yourself to Villavicencio (an easy bus ride from Bogotá) and then take one of the daily flights to La Macarena from there (COP$250,000).

Ecoturismo Sierra de La Macarena arranges charter flights from Villavicencio, including (rather adventurous!) Saturday outings in an aged DC-3.

If you want to reach La Macarena overland, contact Constrans Guaviare, which offers three buses a week to and from San José del Guaviare (COP$80,000, seven hours).
