Very well preserved area, this is easily the most beautiful part of Bogota, near downtown and the museums. Went by day, lots of people about, felt perfectly safe, great places to visit

During the day la Candelaria is a cacophony of noisy cars, homeless drug addicts and cheap fast food joints. By night the homeless become more persistent in their begging for crack money and can get a bit sinister. There are armed police and muzzled Rottweilers...More

Over hyped and overrated. Most streets in Bogotá are the same with small shops etc. Quite crowded when we visited. OK for a short walk.

Think this is the best area to stay in and it felt safe enough. Loads of bars and restaurants about here. There can be a lot of traffic around here during day. Quick walk to mount monseratte.

The La Candelaria neighborhood in Bogota is beautiful! Buildings are brightly painted and street art is everywhere. There are great restaurants and bars, and many hostels to choose from. It's easy to get to several tourist destinations as well.

I can't remember the guide's name but it was featured in LP Bogota. Graffiti is gorgeous. Also fun shops and light snacks/drinks in stores along the way.

I'm not sure of your desired "adventure level"... I've stayed in both Chapinero (where The Cité Hotel is located) and in Candelaria. Here's the thing... during the day, Candelaria is wonderful. The old buildings, the shops... More
