Welcome to West of Bogotá
Those who go west from Bogotá are heading to the beach, Medellín or coffee country. Many don't stop, but there are a few places that qualify as destinations. If you're traveling by your own means, note that two highways head out of Bogotá – take the northerly route via La Vega (west on Calle 80), a nicer drive than the southern route via Facatavita, which hooks up with the La Vega route (after many suburbs and truck jams) at Villeta, about 65km west.
The best reason to come out this way is the gorgeous privately owned Parque Natural Chicaque, where bosque de niebla (cloud forest) hikes await only 20km west of Bogotá.
