With its 9 million of inhabitants, Bogota is the capital of Colombia. The expansion of the city has been too quick, and the municipality failed to develop sound public transportation. By consequence, it’s complicated and time-consuming to move around the city, especially at rush hour. Besides that, the climate isn’t favorable in Bogota. The capital is surrounded by Paramos, at an altitude of 2700m. Therefore, it’s rainy/cloudy most of the time. Don’t forget to take a jacket and a rain jacket with you.
Transportation problems and bad weather make that most of the travelers don’t like Bogota.
It’s a pity because the majority of them will have to land in the capital (biggest airport in Colombia).
We spent one month looking for the best activities, districts, accommodations, and tips to explore the city. We loved all the tours that Bogota can offer and we think it’s the best way to start enjoying the capital.
Thanks to us, you will get a new chance to fall in love with the most unloved city in Colombia.
