Location of the town and municipality of Guatavita in Cundinamarca Department.

Guatavita is a municipality and town of Colombia in the Guavio Province of the Cundinamarca department. The sacred and ceremonial Lake Guatavita, of the Pre-Columbian Muiscas people, is located nearby within the Sesquilé Municipality of Almeidas Province.

Guatavita was rebuilt on higher ground in the middle 60's due to the construction of the Tominé Reservoir, which intentionally flooded the area of the town.
