THE SUGAMUXI REGION

Magic and Charm

Sugamuxi is a province of unique nature, cities, markets and people. Our region is home to the Muisca indigenous culture and its sacred places. Sugamuxi , in the heart of the Boyacá region, has 13 villages and is a privileged province with a great diversity of nature and culture to explore. It is found in the tropical highlands of the eastern Andes of Colombia.

We are descendants of the Muisca culture, worshipers of the sun and water. Our traditions are quite particular and rural people in small towns have especially unique ways of dressing, talking and socializing. We share an acute connection with mountains, water and our entire sacred Earth.

We welcome you to Sugamuxi and offer you the heart of our culture, naturalism and heritage. We hope you can explore all it has to offer with relaxation and enjoyment.
