Bogotá is great for culture, art & sightseeing.

Fuel up with a cup of Colombian coffee before spending the day walking the cobblestone streets of La Candelaria. Love gold? There's a museum for that! The Museo del Oro is home to more than 30,000 pieces of gold.

What should you order while you’re in Bogotá?

Feeling adventurous? Homigas culonas (big ants) can be found by the packet in the Candelaria area. If that's out of your comfort zone, grab a cup of hot chocolate served up with an unexpected surprise. In Bogota, it's customary to add a chunk of soft cheese.
