Bogotá Go Shopping

Maybe not the most exciting thing to do while traveling, but hey, you might want to treat yourself… Or why not give a nice "regalo" (gift) to some new friend or thank someone for their hospitality or kindness (there is a lot of that here!). And Bogota has definitly lots of places to help you tackle shopping.

Centro Commercial Andino BogotaThere are many massive shopping malls all over the city, the best ones located in the "posh areas" like Zona Rosa. You will find pretty much anything from trendy clothes to designer glasses or jewelery (emeralds are cheap!)…

One place we really like if you want to buy Colombian crafts is the amazing shop "Talento Colombiano"in Usaquen. Everything is authentic and prices are affordable considering the quality of the products. A great place to find a gift for your loved one.

San Andresito : Carrera 38 Los Martires

You will be able to get some great bargains there if you can speak a bit of Spanish and negotiate well. You can, for example, go to San Andresito, an area west of downtown packed of shops selling everything for super cheap. It is the best place in the city to go if you are looking for anything from clothes to food to kids toys to fabrics to beads to... Well anything!

Pasaje Rivas : La Candelaria Calle 10

Pasaje Rivas is not a modern shopping center but consist of many small shops along narrow passageways. At this market you can find a lot of different things like souvenirs (for example hammocks for a good price) and a lot of handicraft, handmade furniture and things for the home. It is a nice place to walk around in for a while watching all the different things for sale and the people.
