What I did
Laguna de Tota Boyaca

Lake Tota was an important religious center for the Muisca culture. The area around Lake Tota is one of the major onion producing regions of Colombia. It is really pretty and it's a great place to go the trip.

When I was there I ate a delicious trout. I was very surprised with the big trout. This town is wonderful because the Tota Lake is the most famous tourist place. You can see ducks, trouts and geeses. I took a boat for my trip on the lake. It was incredible. I saw a beautiful hotel close the lake. The guide said me: "That hotel is for foreigners, it's very expensive." Anyway I played with the sand like a child. My son didn't want to play with me because the sand was wet and cold. 

There was a crazy people they was swimming in the lake and it was really cold. The restaurant is very good. The people is nice and they gave us free coffee. 

The Aquitania's church is very colonial and the town is quiet. If you don't want to listen anything, you can reserve a hotel there. Don't forget your camera because sometimes it's sunny and the landscape it's wonderful. You would see the blue firmento. The lake is far away for the town, I recommend that you visit this place very early in the morning. I guess you shouldn't pay to enter to the lake but it's better that you have money.

I did a short video of Tota lake. I think This town it's like Guatape in Antioquia.
