Located just southwest of Bogotá, Colombia, is Hotel del Salto. The French-styled mansion opened in 1923 and was once a luxurious hotel that welcomed wealthy travelers.
Hotel del Salto is situated on the edge of a steep, jagged cliff and overlooks Tequendama Falls, a 515 foot waterfall.
However, due to nearby river contamination, it eventually fell into a state of disrepair. The hotel closed down in the early 90’s and was abandoned.
The deserted spot later became a popular suicide location, and many people believe that the hotel is now haunted by their lost souls. Legend has it that indigenous Muisca Indians flew off the waterfall as eagles to their freedom during the Spanish conquest of South America.
Recently, Hotel del Salto was renovated into a museum.
