    All very well maintained and presented. Recommend a tour because there are a lot of information. Book at least 4 hours to enjoy all that is presented. The history of the coins is simply stunning. If you are in Bogota strongly recommend if you plan to visit.

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.
