What you'll do

Enjoy an adventure of lively Bogotá off the beaten track, by skipping the crowds at Plaza Bolívar to squeeze into a hidden colonial home once a hole in the wall for hungry visitors, or peek through the window of a sassy salsa school — ¡Bravo! See the world's first crowd-funded skyscraper that didn't go as planned, and admire tributes to a young graffiti artist on the bridge of Avenida Boyacá. At a market locals love, see, smell and taste why Colombia is one of the most biodiverse nations, before heading to creative barrio La Macarena to see Colombian society through the eyes of foreign photographers at a hidden art nook. Once there, appreciate everything from Caribbean salsa music to Mexican mariachis, as you navigate its multi-cultured streets.

Where you’ll go

Wander hidden nooks and crooks of the elevated but not isolated melting pot of cultures Bogotá, along the cobblestone streets of its colonial-era heart La Candelaria. Navigate narrow streets lined with emerald shops and talkative vendors before bursting through an alleyway adorned with street art representing the city's past and present. Next, head downtown and pass a treasure trove of landmarks, like the home of liberator Simón Bolívar, but disappear into the shadows of skyscrapers, where vibrant salsa comes to life. Pop into a local farmer's market, basking in the sweet scent of tropical fruit and freshly picked chrysanthemums, before traveling to La Macarena to get lost along Moorish-style masterpieces and hidden cultural hotspots. 

    • Ditch the travel guide for a local savvy host that knows the hidden gems Bogotá has to offer, like an ancient shop once a hole in the wall.
    • Escape the tourist rush for a dose of daily life in Bogotá, like enjoying the sweet aromas of fresh fruit at a farmer's market.
