Site Entrance

Bogotá Region

Entrance to Laguna de Guatavita, the sacred lake and ritual center of the Muisca people. Guides on the 90-minute circuit tour are compulsory and included in the entrance price. Officially, there are always English guides available, but if one is not around, the tours leave every 15 minutes and you'll need to wait around until one becomes available.
