Colombia’s cosmopolitan capital city is tucked on a high plateau in the Andes of central Colombia, 2,600 meters above sea level. Bogota is the third-highest capital city in South America, and due its altitude the city tends to remain a few degrees cooler than the rest of the country.

Home to a population of eight million people from all corners of Colombia, Bogota boasts a blend of culture and architecture, from the ancient to the modern. The old town of Candelaria is full of small cobbled streets and colourful buildings. In the Gold Museum you will find the richest collection of pre-Hispanic gold anywhere in the world.

The famous Botero Art Museum, hosts Fernando Botero’s collection of proportionally exaggerated figures. The districts of Parque 93, Zona Rosa and Usaken are great for restaurants, shopping and bars. There is also plenty of green space such as the Simon Bolivar Park Metropolitan Park. To fully appreciate the spectacular landscapes, you can take a cable car ride up the 3,152-metre Monserrate Hill and take in the wonderful views of the sprawling city.
