    • * LA TATACOA DESERT ENJOYS A PRIVILEGED GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION AT LATITUDE 3º13' NORTH AND LONGITUDE 75º10' WEST, NOT FAR FROM THE EQUATORIAL LINE.

    • Aside from having perfect geographic and atmospheric conditions for the observation of celestial bodies, La Tatacoa has no visual or auditory pollution.
    • THE TATACOA DESERT WHICH LIES ABOUT AN HOUR NORTH-EAST OF THE CITY OF NEIVA IS A SPECTACULAR LANDSCAPE AND A STARK CONTRAST TO THE LUSH VEGETATION WHICH COVERS THE REST OF THE REGION.
    • * SOME PEOPLE SAY THAT THE TEMPERATURE IN LA TATACOA DESERT IS SO HIGH THAT IT IS POSSIBLE TO COOK AN EGG BURIED IN THE SAND.
