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.

  • Everytime I go I feel that it gets better. Is not a big place, but there is plenty of stuff to be learned. It takes about one afternoon to visit the whole place and is not expensive. The restaurant is also good
  • Everything is good but the "stars show" with that clown - nothing to do with the actual stars projection
  • The planetarium of Bogotá is amazing place where activities are dedicated to astronomy, cience, history, culture and technology. The domo and the space museum they are the pleces where there is more programming for any public or astronomy lovers and in the coference nooms science lectores other topics of interest.

  • Beautiful place to see, I love to see the part of the stars and the sky is marvelous, the place is quiet and makes me want to think and write about all the great that humanity has to discover around the universe.
