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.

  • It's one of the best churches to see in la Candelaria and it is also in a central spot so you don't have to walk so much to see it.  more »
  • If you're in the area this just needs just a quick stop inside. Mostly intriguing because of its colour on the outside.  more »
  • For the ones that loves history and a special connection with Faith. A very beautiful collection of colonial golden art.  more »

  • The Church is very nice, when I went you were making some arrangements. Quite interesting celebration of Kings mages who do in this town. The area is not very safe, caution is advised.
