Getting There & Away

Ráquira is 5km off the Tunja–Chiquinquirá road, down a side road branching off at Tres Esquinas. Four minibuses run Monday to Friday between Villa de Leyva and Ráquira (COP$6000, 45 minutes, 7:30am, 12:45pm, 3pm and 4:50pm), with a fifth added on weekends.

Returning from Ráquira to Villa de Leyva, the majority of buses do not enter the town – you'll need to jump off at the Muisca Sol monument at the Sáchica intersection and grab a passing bus on the Tunja-Villa run.

A handful of buses from Bogotá also call here daily.

A round-trip taxi from Villa de Leyva with an hour or so to explore will set you back about COP$80,000, or COP$100,000 if you want to also swing by La Candelaria.
