La Calera

La Calera is a sleepy looking town in the mountains of Cundinamarca, just outside Bogotá. Don't let looks fool you—this is one of the wealthiest towns in Colombia (emerald wealth), and plenty of the farms play host to wealthy Bogotanos on weekends. For a visitor, it's quiet and pretty, and is the principal spot around Bogotá for paragliding (follow the signs). As it is next to the main reservoir supplying water to Bogotá, there is a noticeably heavy military presence.
