What to do in Bogota
In one day you can go around Bogota and see and discover different things. Here we will propose some routes for you to choose depending on your preferences.
If you love museums. Near Bogota Bed & Breakfast INN, no more than 2 to 4 km from our B&B, you can find both art and history museums. For the most part they are displayed in beautiful old houses in La Candelaria. You will find the Botero Museum, the Gold Museum, among others. For more information, you can click here or visit our Bogota museum guide in our web site (How to Spend your Days). There you will find hours of operation, ticket prices, distance from our Bogota Bed and Breakfast INN, and other important information.
2. At lunchtime you can enjoy a delicious meal in one of the restaurants in La Candelaria, like La Puerta Falsa or Casa Vieja. Close to our B&B there is Las Acacias, El Barrio -at the Park Way– and four blocks away you find La Casa de la Pasta (owned and operated by an Italian family). You can also have a nice cup of coffee in Juan Valdez coffee shop, Oma Coffee Shop or in our Vereda Central, small coffee producer, its really good!! and really close to our house. Within an 8-block area from Bogota Bed and Breakfast INN you will find many small coffee shops, bakeries, eateries, etc.
3. Another great option is visiting the Cerro de Monserrate. There are two options to go up: taking the regular telesférico (cable car) or the funicular (train). Some times the trail is opened and you can walk all the way until the top.
rom this magical place it is possible to appreciate a magnificent panorama of Bogota and enjoy the typical and international gastronomy in the two restaurants you find at the top of the mountain. After taking nice and awesome pictures at Monserrat Mountain you can go down and visit la Quinta de Bolivar, which is located near to the Monsarrat Station. La Quinta de Bolivar was the residence of Simon Bolivar after the war of independence and is now a museum dedicated to Bolivars life.
