Mark Berman, South America backpacker for over 12yrs!
Boyaca is a nice region in Colombia north of Bogota where there are many small towns and medium-sized cities to discover and explore. Duitama, Paipa and Sogamoso are 3 such places. Other places in the region worth visiting include Tunja, Zipaquira, Villa de Leyva and Guatavita. Duitama, Paipa and Sogamoso are just 2hrs by bus north of Bogota and are all close together (20-30mins between each place) and each place has something very special to see!

Paipa

Paipa is a municipality that is very close to Lake Sochacota. You can walk or ride a bicycle to the lake from town. They have boat excursions on mainly Saturdays and Sundays. Paipa is also famous for its thermal swimming pools and has some nice restaurants to try the local food.

Duitama

Duitama is the biggest city of the 3 and its main tourist attraction is the village called Pueblito Boyacense (1996) where you can see colonial houses. The village was created to serve as a home for musicians, poets, writers and art lovers. Located just a few minutes from town by taxi.

Sogamoso

Sogamoso is a good city to see the shops and explore the streets. Sogamoso features street art and murals by local artist Edgar Diaz. His work is all around the city! Sogamoso also has an archaeology museum and Lake Tota is nearby. The city has various celebrations and festivals throughout the year.

My Hostel & Hotel Reviews for Duitama, Paipa & Sogamoso, Colombia:

Hotel Ciudad del Sol, Sogamoso, Colombia - Large Photo
Hotel Ciudad del Sol, Sogamoso, Colombia (September 2020 - 1 night) - The price is surprising at just $9USD per night for 2 people, maybe it was cheaper than normal being offpeak season after Colombia reopened from Covid-19 in September 2020. Hotel Ciudad del Sol in Sogamoso is just a block or 2 out from the really expensive hotels near the plaza and is a great option indeed! The hotel is secure and the rooms are comfortable. The hotel has multiple floors so you can get a room with a view of the street below. Recommended.
Hotel Castilla, Duitama, Colombia - Large Photo
Hotel Castilla, Duitama, Colombia (September 2020 - 1 night) - Hotel Castilla in Duitama is located in the city center just a block down from the main plaza. At around $14USD for 2 people it is fantastic value for a private room with bathroom, tv, wifi etc. The room was not huge and not overly flash but you can't complain at this price. It certainly is of reasonable standard and can be recommended! There are restaurants and food outside as well as many high quality shops.
Hotel Paipa Inn, Paipa, Colombia - Large Photo
