Introduction to the Bogotá Region

The beautiful neighborhood of Alhambra

Bogotá just like Colombia is suffering from a terrible reputation. We imagine it noisy, dirty, dangerous, polluted... Reality is far from those clichés and we are convinced that the vibrant city should be more like a stop-over.

=> Check our Bogotá City Guide for attractions, visits, hotels, retaurants and things to do in the city. Some highlights of Bogotá include : the Candelaria, Monserrate, Usaquén, the Bogotá CathedralParque Simon BolivarEating out in La Macarena, or clubbing at Andres Carne de Res.

Chicaque, an hour from BogotaIf you live in Bogotá or plan to stay for a few days, there are amazing day trips nearby for nature's lovers or cultural enthusiasts.

Visit the Salt Cathedral of Zipaquira, learn about the legend of El Dorado in Guatavita, or a bit further visit Honda, one of Colombia's most preserved colonial cities.

For nature and hiking, Bogota is surrounded by Paramo, a unique ecosystem only found in a few Andean countries. There are several day hikes which can help you discovering the amazing fauna and flora of the Paramo. Don't miss the PNN Chingaza and the Lagunas de Siecha or the Birth of the River Bogota near Villapinzón.

For easier walks and more beautiful nature, go to Chicaque Nature Park, Santandercito, or check Colombia's highest waterfall in La Chorrera.
