La Macarena hill range is considered by scientists all over the world as one of the most important wildlife refuges in the planet.
La Macarena is so unique due to its isolated hill range features. In the archaeological sites on rivers Duda and Guayabero there are petroglyphs and pictograms that belong to the pre-Columbian tribes that lived here. Here, there are over twenty species of flora and the same amount of fauna that can not be found anywhere else in the world.
Cano Cristales is a Colombian river located in La Macarena hill range. The river is commonly called “The River of Five Colors”, “The Liquid Rainbow” or even “The Most Beautiful River in the World”, due to the endemic colored aquatic plant that grows on the bottom of the river producing colors like red, yellow, green, violet and blue, giving it a unique appearance.
