What you'll do

Get a crash course on how to explore the cultural center of Colombia like a local, like visiting city central's famous Plaza Bolívar for a glimpse of Bogotá's political history, but slipping away to see once-illegal street art in a hidden street. Snap a picture of the towering La Catedral Primada (seat of an archbishop!) after learning about the history of the National Capital and admiring its detailed mural. Escape to Parque Santander, a spot of green amidst modern skyscrapers, where you can peek at the nearby Gold Museum to visit later. Next, visit the artsy barrio La Macarena, teeming with artists and stories of Colombian past on every corner. Along the tree-lined streets, your host can point out a must-try café for the rest of your visit – do try the local hot chocolate, chocolate santafereño!

Where you’ll go

Weave between must-see landmarks smack in the middle of cultural hotspot Bogotá, such as the stately Casa de Nariño, as you travel along streets that have seen the passing of centuries. Explore alleys in the La Candelaria neighborhood lined with colorful colonial homes, and dart to the Congress of the Republic, where the past meets the present. Pop to the oldest park in the city, Parque de la Independencia, and stroll underneath wax palms and eucalyptus trees with a view of the larger-than-life Santamaria Bullring. From here, head to the Bushwick of Bogotá – the La Macarena barrio – and rub shoulders with creatives next to galleries galore. Under the magnificent mural of the Plaza de La Perseverancia, discover bursting flavors to try on your trip.
