Enjoy playing the real national sport of Colombia. Even though football (soccer) is probably the highest-rated and most practiced sport in the country, Tejo is a genuine Colombian creation that offers explosive and unmatchable fun.
The origins of Tejo go back to pre-Hispanic times. The Muisca civilization inhabited the region that now holds the cosmopolitan city of Bogotá and neighboring towns. Over 600 years ago, in a show of aim and skill, they used to throw discs made out of gold to boxes filled with clay. The closer to the center of the box the better your score.
The game survived colonial times and by the 20th century a very important addition to the game was made: gunpowder!
Nowadays, Tejo is recognized for having an explosive nature. Modern Tejo courts can be noisy places not only because of the fun chatter and banter between players but most noticeably for the sound of the explosions generated by the contact between the disk (now made of steel), the gunpowder encased in paper, and a metal ring in the middle of the box.
The ancient objective remains: make the disk land as close to the center of the box as possible.
Words cannot faithfully describe the amazing experience of playing Tejo. That is why we invite you to do the Tejo Tour with us, accompanied by an expert bilingual guide, visit a genuine court where locals play, learn the rules and basic motions.
Have the best fun making explosions happen, that is if you have the right aim, that could be enhanced by a beer or a shot of Aguardiente.
At all times during this adventure, you will have available safe and comfortable private transport. You may also want to taste a typical meal accompanied by a local beer, a must in every game.
