Bogota Vacations

The first thing that you should know about Bogota is that while it sits near the equator, don't go there expecting it to be hot, balmy and tropical. That is because the city sits on the side of a mountain at some 8,860 feet in elevation, which means cool temperatures--even …

Amazing city with so much culture. I stayed here for a month out of three months in Colombia (part of a much larger trip). Stayed in the quirky streets of La Candelaria, met lots of amazing locals who's hospitality is unrivalled, they showed me best spots for both locals and tourists. Highly recommend a visit here

everything here is well worth the trip. Colombia is a country of convenience and adventure, Rappi is happy to help with anything you might need without leaving the comfort of your own couch. You can spend a day climbing Monserrate or exploring the many malls. Good food is never far no matter where you are.

My favorite city. A place to go if you really want to test your Spanish skills. People there are so proud of their city and county. I recommend going to Monserrate to get a breathtaking view of the city. All the food is super economic even in what would be considered expensive restaurants. Also the food is great and the food is fresh. Like any othet city, you have to use common sense and be cautious. I'm sure there is something for anyone to love in Bogotá.

There are many sides to Bogotá, a sprawling city and the beating heart of Colombia. As long as you stay centrally located and avoid driving (this city is legendary for its horrendous traffic), you will enjoy its many facets, from the historic center of La Candelaria to the hip and trendy Zona Rosa. Despite its reputation for being unsafe, I found the city to be vibrant and comfortable at all hours of the day, although take precaution at night and keep an eye on your belongings. Bogota may not be the prettiest city at first sight, but dig around and you'll find plenty to love.
