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.

  • Parking is limited, but most people just pull off the side of the road. There are lots of cool roadside eateries set up all along the highway. The view is really remarkable, and there are great views ...  more »

  • That's a gorgeus place, truly unforgettable. Too bad it's poluted. Still worth a visit.
  • Besides bad smell, its a beautiful place to visit, just for take a good pictures on site.
  • The waterfall itself is truly breathtaking but it's quite sad to see that the Colombian people have let the natural beauty of the place start to die. The water that flows over this beautiful wonderful it is actually sewage from Bogota and you can smell it quite strongly as you drive up to the waterfall :-( but it is still a very nice view if you have the time to make it do so!
  • The view itself it's amazing really pretty but the place is ugly old and dirty they should take better care of it nevertheless if you are going to pass it through you should definitely stop for 10mins and take a pic
  • Awesome view
