Tibabuyes is a wetland, part of the Wetlands of Bogotá, located in the
localities Suba and Engativá, Bogotá, Colombia. The wetland, in the Juan Amarillo River basin on
the Bogotá savanna is the largest of the wetlands of Bogotá and covers an area of 222 hectares
(550 acres).
[1]
With the planned construction of Avenida Longitudinal de Occidente/Cundinamarca
Highway, there will have to be built an overpass, which will affect the wetlands. The indigenous
community and the inhabitants of the neighbourhoods surrounding the place are opposed to it. The
name Tibabuyes comes from Muysccubun, the language of the indigenous Muisca, who inhabited the Bogotá savanna before the Spanish conquest,
and means "land of the farmers".
