Its steep and narrow streets still carry names that evoke the Spanish Colonial Era. Its Republican style buildings, infrastructure, history, legends and heroic events, recreate a magical environment harboring multiple artistic and cultural expressions just waiting to be discovered.
The most important and representative museums of the country are clustered in this area, such as the Gold Museum with its pre-Columbian treasure. The pre-Hispanic gold collection is the largest in the world, comprising over 34,000 pieces.
The Monserrate Sanctuary, located 3,200 meters above sea level, is one of Bogota’s symbols, not only because of its natural resources, but because of its religious connotations. Since 1640, when it was founded, the sanctuary has been visited by millions of pilgrims and travelers every year.
The traditional neighborhood of La Macarena or “Zona M” is known for its bohemian character with cozy bars and restaurants.
Bogota’s magical nights are one of its most striking features. The cool climate creates a contrasting feel with the lively city that can be boisterous or quiet and romantic, depending on what suits you best.
We invite you to enjoy the traditional Colombian mixed rhythms that awaken our visitors to a new experience: the “rumba”.
One Caribbean word describes the excitement of Bogota’s nightlife above all others “La Rumba”, a term that suggests fun-filled nights to the sound of the beat of your liking: live music, karaoke, tropical, rock, and electronic crossover. Take your pick of the abundant party offers that suit any taste.
Bogota is the “rumba” capital par excellence. This is not something we boast about ourselves; it’s been confirmed time and again by thousands of tourists who’ve managed to keep pace with a city that never sleeps.
Although the party scene becomes livelier starting on Thursdays, all kinds of evening entertainment can be found on weekdays: both lively and animated, or quiet and romantic.
