  • Must go with a guide which tells you the stories of courage and death in the arena, the place is spectacular in itself, but listening to the stories of the same and the great bullfighters who wore there is spectacular

  • This is, without doubt, fit anyone America's most serious plaza de toros. Rests, presentation of the bull, the fans and the environment. My favorite place and hopefully never again be closed.

  • Although I share entertainment with the bulls, I don't like the structure rustic and antique look a spectacular place due to its old form and historical value in the city.

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.
