Set in a spectacular cradle high in the Andes mountains, Bogota is a gorgeous capital city. From the colonial architecture of La Candelaria to the chic bars of Zona Rosa, every neighborhood in Bogota is alive with a very special kind of energy.
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.
Fly into Bogota el Dorado airport and you're less than 10 miles from downtown, but with traffic, the drive can take an hour. Taxis are an option, but there’s also a free airport bus that will drop you at the bus station, where you can connect to other areas of the city for a small fare.

All types of travelers will find something to like about Usaquen. It offers a mix of upmarket hotels and cheaper hostels, nice restaurants and tasty street food stalls – plus a local flea market held each Sunday, where you can grab a quick bite and local souvenirs.
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.
