Bogotá Off the Beaten Tracks

Bogotá is full of surprises, creative, passionate and sometimes a little crazy. For a great insight into the life of Bogotanos, there's nothing better than getting up early and visiting the flowers and food market of Paloquemao! And on Sundays, head to the highest viewpoint over Bogotá, El Santuario de Guadalupe.

Another great idea is to join the Bogotá Graffiti Tour where Christian will lead you on an almost free tour of the City to discover Bogotá mural paintings and stencils, some of the best in South America. For more art (and free wine if there's an opening), check our guide to Bogotá art galleries.

For more family destinations, either go to the quiet and beautiful Parque El Chico, or venture north outside of Bogotá to get to see the "Taj Mahal" in Parque Jaime Duque.

At night, walk the Avenida Jimenez to watch the Bogotá Mariachis or enjoy a night of Tango in the Pena Esquina del Tango.
