    It is a very good place for walking and observing the different types of plants, in addition to appreciating a nice view of the plants, there are meadows to rest. Its estrada is very economic 2,700 COP and 1. 200COP for children under 3 years old is free. It is more for walk and for people who appreciate the Botany and want to relax with a ride with pure air.

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.
