The luxurious Hotel del Salto opened in 1928 to welcome wealthy travelers visiting the Tequendama Falls area. Situated just opposite to the waterfall and on the edge of the cliff, it provided a breathtaking view to its guests. During the next decades though, Bogotá river was contaminated and tourists gradually lost interest in the area. The hotel finally closed down in the early 90’s and has been left abandoned ever since. The fact that many people in the past have chosen this spot to commit suicide, makes others believe that the hotel is haunted.
