Bogota

Bogota ©
Colombia's heart and soul, Bogota has earned the nickname "Athens of South America" thanks to its abundance of universities, libraries, and lower-level schools.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Zona G Bogota and Club de Golf UMB Universidad Manuela Beltran. Get out of town with these interesting Bogota side-trips: Zipaquira (Catedral Diocesana & Catedral de Sal) and Laguna de Guatavita (in Tierra Negra). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at Gold Museum (Museo del Oro), wander the streets of Parque 93, make a trip to Teatro Mayor Julio Mario Santodomingo, and admire the masterpieces at Museo Botero del Banco de la Republica.

To find other places to visit, reviews, and other tourist information, you can read our Bogota travel planning app .

The Route module can give you travel options from your home to Bogota. In March in Bogota, expect temperatures between 22°C during the day and 11°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 4th (Wed) early enough to travel to Medellin.

Medellin

Nestled between rising hills in a narrow valley, Medellin serves as an energetic melting pot of people from all socio-economic classes.
Step off the beaten path and head to Museo de Antioquia and Parque Lleras. Explore Medellin's surroundings by going to Santa Fe de Antioquia (Riverside de Occidente, Iglesia de Santa Barbara, & more) and Guatape (Iglesia de Nuestra Senora del Carmen, Piedra del Penol, & more). On the 26th (Thu), give your taste buds a day to remember with a local gastronomic tour. Make the 3rd (Thu) a stimulating day with a coffee and tea tour. And it doesn't end there: explore the activities along Laguna de Guatape, don't miss a visit to Plaza Botero, examine the collection at El Castillo Museo y Jardines, and take in the local highlights with Walking tours.
