Description

Our rendezvous point to kick off the adventure will be at your accommodation, whether it's a hotel, Airbnb, or another chosen spot for the group. Depending on the group size, we can agree on a single meeting point for convenience. Upon arrival, our friendly staff will extend a warm welcome, and I'll arrange for some refreshing beverages to kickstart our afternoon. You can opt for Panela lemonade, a delightful organic concoction derived from sugarcane juice, or perhaps indulge in some artisanal craft beer. The choice is yours! Once we're geared up, we'll head straight to our designated station to dive into the thrilling game of Tejo. I'll provide a brief overview of the game and demonstrate the technique, culminating in the exhilarating moment of popping the target and shouting 'Mechaaa!' Tejo it's a tradition dating back over 500 years practiced by the Muiscas, the indigenous tribe of Bogotá's region that has survived through oral tradition. Today, it stands as Colombia's national sport and a cherished cultural heritage. Similar to Cornhole, Tejo involves aiming to pop small gunpowder-filled triangles using a metal piece. It's completely safe, with the only risk being the thrill of victory! RNT: 141670
