Colombia’s cosmopolitan capital city is a destination of many personalities —cutting-edge malls and boutiques right alongside historic marketplaces, colonial buildings resting in the shadow of shimmering glass skyscrapers, ultra-modern museums, galleries and restaurants punctuated by tranquil plazas and leafy parks. No matter what you came to discover, you’ll find it in Bogotá.

The city can be unfamiliar and exciting or warm, welcoming and comfortable. From its quiet parks to its buzzing academic community to its love of great food and wine, Bogotá will sweep you up in a deep comforting embrace that will keep your head spinning for days.

Traipse through La Candelaria, a charming neighbourhood filled with cafés, colonial-era churches and fascinating museums. For those with a more modern sensibility, head to the Northern Bogotá financial and commercial district, where you will find no shortage of trendy boutiques, fashionable restaurants and hip nightclubs.
