See the birthplace of Bogotá at Plaza Del Chorro Del Quevedo. Established as a garrison by Gonzalo Jimenez de Quesada, who later founded the city in the same place in 1538, the square has long served as one of Bogotá's social hubs. These days, students and alternative youngsters meet here in the evening to socialize before heading out for a night on the town. Try "chicha," a traditional Colombian alcoholic drink made from fermented corn. You can find plenty of stalls selling the drink in the surrounding streets.

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.
