Bogota — 2 nights

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.
When in Bogota, make a side trip to see Catedral de Sal de Zipaquira in Zipaquira, approximately Zipaquira away. There's lots more to do: indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Monserrate, make a trip to Bolivar Square, and explore the world behind art at Museo Botero del Banco de la Republica.
