Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Really like the town. We love the stones on the foor, walls, the friendly town dog, the statues and everything. It is very different from numerous south america plazas that i have been to.

Guatavita is a municipality and town of Colombia in the Guavio Province
of the department of Cundinamarca. Guatavita is located 75 km northeast
of the capital Bogotá. It borders Sesquilé and Machetá in the north,
Gachetá and Junín in the east, Guasca and Sopó in the south and in the
west are Tocancipá and Gachancipá.

Before the Spanish conquest of the Muisca on the Altiplano Cundiboyacense,
the central plateau in the Colombian Andes, the area was inhabited by the
Muisca organized in their Muisca Confederation. Guatavita was ruled by a
cacique who was a powerful figure consulted by the zipas of Bacatá and the
zaques of Hunza. Guatavita was specialized in gold working.[1] An important
temple honouring Sué, the Sun god in the religion of the Muisca was constructed
in Guatavita.

Modern Guatavita was founded on March 18th, 1593 by Miguel de Ibarra.

Guatavita was rebuilt on higher ground in the mid 1960s due to the construction
of the Tominé Reservoir, which intentionally flooded the area of the town.
