Bogota is the capital of Colombia and has many activities and day trips to offer. Surrounded by the Andes mountains, the city doesn’t seduce the travelers at first sight, because of the cold/foggy weather and awful traffic.
But if you give it enough time and positive energy, you will learn how to appreciate the city. Wander among the graffiti streets in La Candelaria, visit the Gold and Botero museums, book one of the many tours to hear more about the Colombian culture, enjoy the nightlife in Chapinero and La Zona Rosa, eat unusual foods in the best restaurants and appreciate the sunset from Montserrate.
Then, take some fresh air by hiking through unforgettable landscapes like Sumapaz and Chingaza, find out the place where the legend of the El Dorado is born, or visit the salt cathedrals of Zipaquira and Nemocon.
