You're going to love Bogotá
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.
