Ciudad de Piedra near San José del Guaviare

Hotel El Jardin Cll 9 Nº24-34, Phone: 315276 4491

El Jardin Hotel is just half a block from the pretty central plaza of the city, and only a few blocks from the Zona Rosa (nightlife district) - it's near to plenty of restaurants and clubs, but is quiet at night. Double rooms are between 50-60.000 COP, with TV and air-conditioning. There is also Wi-Fi available.

Yurupary Hotel  Cll 8 Nº 22-87, Phone: 313 263 2695

Similar to El Jardin, Hostel Yurupary is also less than a block from the main plaza and offers comfortable basic rooms for a reasonable price, with TV and air-conditioning also available. With some good restaurants and breakfast cafes next door to the hotel it's another good option for travellers on a lower budget without sacrificing comfort.

Hotel Aeropuerto Cll 10 Nº 23- 44, Phone: 314 357 5133 - 584 1141

A little further from the city centre and, appropriately, next to the city airport is this larger more luxurious option, with fancy suites, restaurant and swimming pool. A room for one person with air-con and Wi-Fi will set you back 86.000 COP, and larger rooms for up to 3 people are available for less than 200.000.

Eating Out and Restaurants
..........................................................................................................................................

San José del Guiviare is surprisingly well-developed when it comes to eating out, with good restaurants, vegetarian options, and evening opening hours. The best place in town is just off the roundabout on the edge of the city - La Hamburgueseria Gourmet serves up delicious burgers and steaks for a good price with excellent meat. They also prepare a tasty quinoa salad for non meat eaters.

In the center of town, Leoni Pizzeria offers thin crispy pizzas, and Nomada Cafe Restaurant has nice outdoor seating and a variety of dishes on offer, from crepes and stuffed arepas to steaks and chicken dishes. Just down the road from here are the local vegetarian and Chinese restaurants which offer some extra diversity to the town's 'gastronomy' scene. For a small, non-touristy city, San Jose offers a lot when it comes to food!

Nightlife, Bars and Clubs
..........................................................................................................................................

The Zona Rosa just off the central plaza offers a lively weekend bar and club scene, with lots of students clustering around handful of tienda bars, and a couple of 'happening' nightclubs. The best of these is La Carreta Nightclub (and nearby Bananas isn't bad either), which offers beer and rum at a good price, and a lively atmosphere of local students.

Getting to San Jose del Guaviare
..........................................................................................................................................

Buses with Flota la Macarena depart all day up until 1am from Bogota, and regularly from Villavicencio as well. Offically the journey takes around 9 hours, but if you leave Bogota at 1am you can be there in less than 6 as there are fewer stops along the way. Buses can't be reserved in advance and cost 60.000 COP.

There are also direct flighs from Bogota with Satena, expect to pay 500.000 COP for a return ticket.
