Flourishing on the gastronomy scene and a festival hotspot, Bogota is a captivating city.

At 2600m above sea level, Bogota is the fourth highest capital city in the world, beautifully situated in the heart of the Andes mountains. Take a stroll along the delightful cobbled streets of La Candelaria and admire the colonial buildings, some of which date back to the sixteenth century. In this maze of striking architecture you will find a vast network of restaurants that reflect Colombia’s diverse culture, the capital city is fast becoming a world leader in culinary delights. Throughout the year Bogota hosts vibrant festivals, many of which focus on the arts, and these passionate displays of music and colour are an unforgettable experience. An essential experience in Bogota is a visit to the enormous ‘Museo del Oro’, which houses the world’s most significant collection of pre-Hispanic gold. All of the pieces – from tiny earrings and golden beads to huge spears and masks – are laid out in stunning displays which allow locals and tourists alike to appreciate the intricacy and splendor of these miraculous items. Once you have finished admiring this impressive collection, take a stroll across the road from the museum and you will find a selection of market stalls selling good quality replicas of the pieces crafted into jewellery which are great for souvenirs or presents. Another must-do is taking a trip on the cable car leading up to Monserrate where excellent views of the city await. This up-and-coming capital is no disappointment either when it comes to finding good places to stay, there are plenty of luxury hotel options in the city, which is the perfect base to begin a holiday in Colombia.
