Bogotá Attractions and Visits

Bogotá has a lot to offer: from world class museums, bohemians neighbourhoods and of course an exciting nightlife! On a nice day, head to Monserrate for amazing views of the city.

First, you can explore the areas of La Candelaria for colonial style architecture, or go North and walk in the less famous Usaquen. Another must for any Bogotá visit, is to go to Monserrate and Museo de Oro Bogota, the best museum in the country with some great insights on Colombian history and its original inhabitants.

Other neighborhoods of interest are Chapinero or Zona G. They both are in the middle of the North part of the city, giving you access to the toursitic La Candelaria and to the more upscale Zona T where you can party at the weekends. Chapinero is more for students with its cool bars and clubs while Zona G would be more suited for a romantic diner.

An efficient day trip in Bogotá:

> An early start to get some beautiful lights on the houses in La Candelaria then head West to the Plaza Bolivar.
> Walk the Plaza towards the North after you've visited the Catedral Primada de Colombia and spend 2 hours at the Gold Museum or Museo de Oro de Bogota.
> Take a taxi or walk to La Macarena and have lunch at La Jugueteria.
> Take a taxi to the cable car that leads to Monserrate and enjoy the view.
> Then head to Usaquen to visit the area or go Bogota shopping at Talento Colombiano.
> Grab a beer in one of the Bogota Pubs and then have diner in Usaquen or at Andres Carnes de Res in the Zona T.

=> If you have a bit of time, leave the city for a few hours to visit the salt cathedral of Zipaquira or Laguna de Guatavita to learn about the legend of El Dorado.
