  • La Macarena is a great neighborhood, has a very good amount of options for eating or drinking, the neighborhood is very nice, you have to be careful because the northeastern part is not safe. I love the remodel they did to the police station, but for me the neighborhood star still El Patio, this restaurant is very special since Fernando serving, passing through each of its waiters and cooks, not to mention the beautiful and chaotic decoration.

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.
