Bogota

Trip Planner South America  /  Colombia  /  Bogota

Athens of South America

Colombia's heart and soul, Bogota has earned the nickname "Athens of South America" thanks to its abundance of universities, libraries, and lower-level schools. The starting point of many Bogota tours is the old town, where cobbled streets lined by colonial-era buildings yield museums, bars, hotels, and restaurants. While this area retains much of its colonial look and feel, other neighborhoods show off the city's more modern side, with state of the art sporting venues, innovative business complexes, and plenty of world-class shopping. Weekend cycling tours rank among the top things to do in Bogota, providing a chance to cruise the normally congested streets and see major landmarks at your own pace. Bogota is in Colombia. Take a look at our Colombia trip builder app to refine the details of your trip to Bogota.

Where to stay in Bogota

Many visitors to Bogota stay in La Candelaria, a colonial-era neighborhood in the city center where you can find plenty of decent hostels and mingle with tourists from around the globe. Staying in this area also puts you within walking distance of the city's major museums and best nightlife options. If you prefer to sleep in a quieter area and visit this busy district during the day, consider accommodations in the northern section of the city, which includes the upscale neighborhood Zona T.
