BOGOTA AND IT’S WETLANDS. HUMEDALES

Wetlands are very important ecosystems. They are made up by a not too deep seasonal or permanent body of water, a surrounding strep that could get flooded from time to time, and a strep of non flooded land that protects the wetland. In Bogota wetlands are part of our natural heritage and are protected areas. These particular ecosystems are very important in the social, biological, cultural fields and also are part of the main ecological structure of the District.

Bogota Bed and Breakfast INN was checking out the Humedal de Cordoba. It was a very unrealistic experience: in the middle of this huge and crowded city you get to a peaceful area, it’s just amazing! When in Bogota ask Beatriz to organize a visit to one or two of the 15 Wetlands Bogota has:
