Getting there is a bit far, but the village is nice, and the one hour walk is beautiful, with many birds and cactuses to see. Don't forget to bring a bathing suit for the pool in the white desert part

I enjoy walking in nature and taking photographs, and Tatacoa desert was one of the most surprising places I have been to. Wouldn't have expected such a place in Colombia.

Take the hike through the badlands. However, if it is wet then prepare to get super muddy shoes. Beautiful formations.
