Travel Type:
Alone

Trip Type:
Business / conference Partying / nightlife Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: Bogota is not really a very interesting nor exotic travel destination, but it's a good stop off or landing point into Colombia and the nightlife is pretty good.

Liked: The big city feel, certain degree of sophistication and lots of food and nightlife options

Disliked: Public transportation is deplorable. For a city that rivals NYC or Buenos Aires in size, there is no subway, no train and buses are very limited and difficult. The taxi drivers are nearly all out to rip you off, so you have to watch the meter and watch your back.

Trip Type:
Beach / sunbathing Partying / nightlife Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: Mont Serrate e a Catedral do Sal precisam ser visitadas. A vida noturna é ótima, mas a melhor opção é o Andres Carne de Res - o lugar é simplesmente incrível.

Liked: Cidade grande, mas muito organizada. A Zona Rosa é bastante segura, mas na Candelária é preciso um pouco mais de cautela. Passeios ótimos e uma vida noturna incrível.

Disliked: Sem comentários.

Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year

Customer Travel Tip: Go up to Cerro Montserrate on Sundays when all the locals go (take the hike up - it is exausting but very rewarding) and take a bike tour with Mike based in La Candelaria, he takes you to places you would normally not see

Liked: La Candelaria, nice part of the city (at least during the day)

Disliked: That everybody advised you against going out at night (especially alone) and that people try to rip you off (cab drivers, street vendors)

Relaxation / spa Romantic getaway Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: Be really careful in the big market. Our first day there, a woman spat on my husband's neck to distract him and then tried to grab his wallet from his pocket as he was wiping his neck. As usual when travelling, just know where you are.

Liked: Loved everything about Bogota! I can't pinpoint one thing. I had low expectations, so they were all far exceeded and I'm looking forward to returning.

Disliked: Not yet!
