Prado is located four hours’ drive or 212 kilometres (131 miles) southwest of the capital, in the Tolima department. This quaint countryside village is unique and traditional, but Prado’s magic lies just outside of the village. A short drive will take you to a huge lake and a dam system where you’ll find a large number of small rivers and lakes surrounded by luscious green tropical mountains, ideal for climbing, trekking and discovering untouched places. The lake itself provides many opportunities for water activities such as waterskiing, wake boarding, kayaking, swimming, cliff jumping and boating. Prado is located in a low altitude area, which gives it a year-round tropical climate with an average temperature of 30°C.
