Villa de Leyva

— 2 nights
Positioned away from major trade routes and exploitable resources, the colonial town of Villa de Leyva has been largely left alone--leaving a window into the 16th century that has become one of Colombia's most popular attractions.
On the 9th (Sat), see the interesting displays at Observatoire des indiens muiscas. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 10th (Sun): whizz through the canopy at Mayoral Park, identify plant and animal life at Granja de Avestruces, then learn about winemaking at Vinedo Umana Dajud, and finally stroll around Iguaque National Park.
