We had lunch with financial executives. It was a short walk form their office to the Tabula restaurant, which happens to be a new and excellent restaurant with a good wine list. The area is still under renovation, so it is not the place to...More

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.

Really enjoyed walking through this area. Some really cool streets, colorful buildings and awesome graffiti...you can start here and continue to Plaza Bolivar. Some of the graffiti is like art!

this is definately the neighborhood to be in if you are backpacking in Bogota. Lots to do around, walking distance to all the tourist destinations. A bit shady at night with a lot of homeless people but full and well light

The historic city centre, La Candelaria is a must-do stop for any visitor to Bogota. Go for an extended walk, take in the many murals and have a cup of Columbian coffee. We tried a bike tour as well but were no fans of either...More

Before we came to Bogota we looked loads into where to stay. We read quite a few blogs and reviews that suggested that La C was really dangerous and that Chapinero was a better place to stay. We stayed two days in Chapinero and couldn't...More

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
