The capital of Colombia and a sprawling city of over 8 million people, Bogota is a city on the up after years of neglect.
Located in the heart of Colombia at an altitude of over 2,500 metres, Bogota has seen many recent years of infrastructural improvements and investment.
Most visitors enjoy lively La Candelaria, Bogota’s historical centre, where Colonial and Republican era buildings survive and boutique hotel options abound.
Modern booking Bogota is in evidence in the Zona Rosa, a place to sample modern Colombian cuisine and city life.
