Anybody going from Bogota to Villa de Leyva Wednesday after 12.30 and want to share the costs?

Alternatively - looking to rent a car for 4 days (until Sunday) - privately or officially (who has best price?)

Finally - is there a shared taxi scheme to get to there?

I know about the buses - but they take 4 hours.

By car will take 4 hours also, maybe an extra half hour if there is bad traffic.

We (wife and I and her sister and husband) were just in Villa de Leyva. Left Bogota Tues. morning and returned Thurs. afternoon. We hired a driver (with Chevy Optra) and the 4 of us were quite comfortable. The cost was 325,000 de pesos one way. For an extra 50,000 pesos he will stop in Zipaquira and wait while you visit the Salt Cathedral (interesting). I had reserved a Hertz car for the 3 days (was quoted 478,000 pesos for the 3 days), but I cancelled when we decided to hire the car. Because of the traffic we encountered I was very happy that we did not rent the car, but if you are comfortable driving in and around Bogota, the rental is less expensive.

If you want the name and phone number of the driver we hired, let me know.
