Ultimate Comfort In
Colombia's Capital City
Colombia’s capital city, Bogotá is one of Latin America’s largest metropolitan areas. (In North America, only Mexico City and New York City are larger.) A cultural and culinary hub, its historic La Candelaria is a must-see. Dating back to the 16th century, it is home to a beautiful collection of colonial buildings that are now home to art galleries, restaurants and museums, interspersed with government palaces, theaters and centuries-old churches and convents.
World-class restaurants are plentiful, serving everything from traditional Colombian cuisine to steakhouse fare. Head to Zona Rosa to enjoy non-stop nightlife and to the quieter, more residential Zona G for top-notch restaurants.
Fun day trips from Bogotá include a tour of an authentic Colombian coffee plantation, where guests can learn about the country’s rich coffee-making history and catch a glimpse of the process as it unfolds, and the charming historic town of Zipaquirá, known for its salt mines, including two underground cathedrals carved out of salt.
