General info: 

This spooky hotel seems like it came straight from a horror story. It is placed on a cliff, just above a vast abyss. If the hotel is not spooky enough as it is, the fog from below waterfall covers it from time to time giving it a thriller like daunting feel.

Hotel Del Salto became a Columbian suicide Mecca in the past quarter of the century, which largely added to its reputation. It became famous for the guests that checked out from the hotel by jumping off the balcony to the below corge. Ghost stories were made up, which attracted curious visitors from all over the world. Hotel Del Salto has been one of the most visited abandoned buildings in the world. Recently the hotel has however been under repairs and has opened as a museum called Tequendama Falls Museum of Biodiversity and Culture.

Getting there: 

Hotel Del Salto is located in San Antonio del Tequendama, about 18 miles southwest of Bogotá, on the cliff overlooking the Tequendama Falls. Easiest to get there by taxi or own car.


Hotel Del Salto now serves as a museum, for which you’ll have to pay a small entrance fee.
