This street is really nice, with a bunch of restaurants. We had dinner in a Thai, but we also saw some Peruvian restaurants, an Argentinian, a Spanish and a Brazilian restaurant, pizza and Italian restaurants as well. It shouldn't be missed.

We'd seen mostly fancy, gated high-rises in the north of town where the well-heeled live, dine, and shop. This was totally different; private houses on winding, hilly streets close to downtown -- a lovely meander.

It is a pleasant neighborhood and OK for walking during the day. Come here mostly to stroll, relax and choose a restaurant. Like everywhere beware of pickpockets.

La Macarena really is an unique neighbourhood in Bogotá. It is more uphill which means that it is an escape of the turbulence of the Bogotá city centre. It is bohemian, with beautiful housed. It is a place that will take you back in history.
