Bogota isn’t the place you remember hearing about 20 – 30 years ago… it’s a beautiful, thriving destination! It’s very safe to visit (as long as you stay away from the areas that are high-crime, but all cities have these places). Bogota sits at a high altitude (2640 meters / 8660 feet) so while you expect it to be such a hot and tropical climate year-round, it’s actually quite comfortable throughout the year.
You’ll find yourself in wonderful museums full of the rich history of Bogota. Treat yourself to the many fine restaurants in the area. Most of all, make sure to travel to the top of Monserrate and get a view of the area from Bogota’s highest peak!
