Bogotá is the capital of Colombia, located at high altitude, in the heart of the Andean Cordillera. Numerous activities, visits, and day trips are offered to visitors. Despite its beautiful scenery, the city of Bogotá is rather unpopular with travelers due to its often cold and foggy climate and oppressive road traffic.

But if you decide to spend enough time and give it enough positive vibes, you will learn to appreciate this beautiful city. Stroll through the colorful alleys of La Candelaria, visit the Gold and Botero museums or book a cultural outing on the history of Colombia, go to Chapinero or La Zona Rosa in the evening, enjoy unusual dishes in the city’s best restaurants and watch the sunset from Monserrate. The capital is gigantic. It is important to choose your accommodation carefully.

Then escape the city and go hiking through beautiful natural areas like Sumapaz and Chingaza. Discover the site that inspired the legend of El Dorado, and visit the salt cathedrals of Zipaquira or Nemocon.

To end on a high note, there’s nothing like a nice outdoor activity around Tobia and Suesca before you can relax in the pretty colonial villages of Guaduas or Villa de Leyva.
