City review

Bogotá is the capital and the largest city of Colombia. It is a meeting point for people from all over the country, so it is diverse and multicultural, combining the old days with a modern influence.

This city is green thanks to its parks and the eastern hills where the sanctuaries of Monserrate and Guadalupe are located. Few cities have a landscape like the one that Bogota enjoys daily when their citizens gaze upon that green sea that forms the Andes Mountains, rising above the east.

Best activities

Thanks to this fusion between past and present, you will find an ideal destination with history, activities, gastronomy, culture, business, and much more in the capital.

Bogotá is a city for everyone and has multiple plans and activities that make it ideal for tourism. One of them is to discover its past and importance; therefore, you can go to the center, where you will find the “Plaza de Bolívar,” the “Catedral Primada,” and the “Casa de Nariño.” You can also visit tourist places such as the neighborhood of La Candelaria, the heart of the historic center. There you will find large houses built in colonial times and a unique bohemian atmosphere in the mythical “Plaza del Chorro de Quevedo,” one of the most traditional places of the capital.

Likewise, you can visit important museums, such as the National Museum, the Bogotá Museum of Modern Art (MAMBO), the Maloka Museum of Science and Technology, and the Gold Museum, which houses a significant collection of pre-Hispanic cultures.

The city’s gastronomy also deserves to be explored and enjoyed, where you can find various typical, local, and foreign foods recognized as one of the best in Latin America. Try the region’s typical dishes, such as ajiaco, cocido, tamales, or almojábanas, and try the fruit juices and Colombian desserts prepared with native ingredients.

There are tourist places in Bogotá, such as Monserrate, El Chicó, or Usaquén, which are some of the best areas of the city and welcome residents and visitors with open arms. Another option is to visit some parks, such as “El Nacional,” “Parque de la 93,” or “Simón Bolívar.” There you can play sports, walk, contemplate nature, or sit down and read a book when you can.

What to expect from the city

• Due to the privileged location of the country, Colombia does not have seasons. For this reason, there is no wrong time to travel to Bogotá since you will find a mild and pleasant climate all year. On the other hand, in the second half of the year, you can attend major musical events such as the "festivales al parque," where you can enjoy concerts of musical genres such as salsa, hip hop, jazz, and Rock, among others.

• Bogotá has a very complete public transport network, which includes a bus or collective system called Transmilenio. You can approach the employees of the hotel where you stay and ask them how you can mobilize in a safe way by the capital. You can also transport through taxis, Cabify, Uber, etc.

• Remember not to withdraw high sums of money from ATMs in the city that are in unsafe places. If you still need cash, ask for police help to avoid theft and other inconvenience.

• In most places open to the public (shopping malls, cafes, shops, cinemas) receive international credit cards. Therefore, avoid carrying cash because with the use of the cards is enough.

• Remember to change your money in safe exchange houses. You can use Western Union, Easy Money and other trusted places.

• The climate of the city is cold-temperate, with average temperatures of 14 degrees Celsius that can go down in the evenings and at some times of the year. Therefore, it is advisable to wear clothes such as coats, jackets, jumpers, etc.

• Keep in mind that the height of Bogotá is not like that of other cities on the continent. The capital of Colombia is located at an impressive height of 2,600 meters above sea level. This usually does not cause problems for tourists; however, try to get used to it by drinking plenty of water, eating well, and resting properly.

• So that you don't get lost with the time, you should know that the city is in the GMT-5 time zone and does not have a seasonal time adjustment like the rest of the country.

• There are many ways to get to Bogotá. The reason for this is that the capital of Colombia is in the center of the Colombian territory, which, in turn, is the gateway to the South American continent. Many flights include a layover at the El Dorado international airport in Bogotá. Some of the airlines that arrive in the city are Iberia, Avianca, Air France, Air Canada, Lufthansa, British Airways, and American Airlines.
