I loved Bogotá. Though I only had time for Monseratte and La Candelaria, I could easily spend a few days exploring. I felt safe, even when exploring alone and taking pictures. I made sure to take a hotel taxi before it got dark.Posted: May 1, 2023
I felt very safe in Bogotá and I loved the old part of the city. It's really pretty and clean, and there are lots of police officers on the streets. I took a bus to Zipaquirá to see the salt cathedral, and it was amazing. The Museo del Oro and Museo Botero were also really great. The Museo del Oro is one of the best history museums I've ever been to.Posted: May 1, 2023
I stayed in the La Candelaria area and that was relaxed, day and night. I did a few tip-based city walks (one about food, another about street art), visited the Botero museum and the gold museum, took the funicular up to Monserrate, and did a day trip to the salt cathedral and Guatavita. I’ll definitely go back in the future to see more of the country.Posted: April 29, 2023
Bogotá -Masaya hostel (has private and shared rooms) in Candelaria -Hotel Bicentario is close too Stayed in and liked both. Monserrate…Skip the hike (safety is my reason) but do go!!! (Don’t eat in The French rest. there, it was disappointing) Tour of Paloquemao Fruit Market…book through AirBnb…AWESOME Loved the Gold Museum Day trip to Guatevita or to the Salt Cathedral Both great!! Easy to take a walking tour of the city and one for graffiti too. And YES to Crepes & Waffles!! I’ve been many times.Posted: November 12, 2022
A few of my Bogata favs: museo del oro, museo botero, plaza de bolivar, Monserrate, la candelaria neighborhood, if you’re there on a Sunday - ciclovia, if you have transportation arrangements- a day trip to the salt cathedral and go to Andres Carne de Res in Cundinamarca on the way back to bogata. Colombia is beautiful!!!Posted: November 8, 2022
I was just in Bogota in September for a long weekend. We did the free walking city tour and Monserrate (and just explored on our own). We stayed at Hotel NH Bogota Boheme Royal. We got a private driver to drive us to the salt cathedral in Zipaquirá. We also went to the city center there and he took us to Andres Carne de Res on the way back in Chia which is the original location and best for photos, decor, and entertainment. The one in Bogota (right under the hotel mentioned) was fun for music and dancing.Posted: November 7, 2022
Love Bogotá! I stated a Hotel de la Opera in La Candelaria and it was great. Super easy to walk around and explore the area. The hike up Monserrate is harder than I expected due to altitude but worth it. I also highly recommend taking a food tour.Posted: November 5, 2022
I recommend staying either in the Chapinero area or the Zona T/Calle 85 area. Please remember Bogota is not a safe city so don’t take cabs from the streets. Download an app called Cabify and hail a cab or a car (but ride hailing is illegal in Colombia so you have to sit in the front in case you’re stopped by police). For data go to any Éxito or Carulla store and get a prepaid sim plan. It’s super easy and that way, you can have access to this app all the time. Don’t take your phone out in the street though. So, the Cerro de Monserrate, Candelaria, Chorro se Quevedo, plaza de Bolivar and pretty much the historical centers are a must, but remember…unsafe. Also, I recommend taking the train de la sabana to the Salt Cathedral in Zipaquira, and going to Andres Carne de Res (a very unique restaurant that turns into a club at night). The original one is in Chia (outside of Bogota) but there is also one in Zona T. As a local that doesn’t live there any more and has lived in other cities/countries I can tell you that Bogota has THE BEST party scene, bars and really good restaurants so make sure you at least enjoy zona T’s, Zona G’s and Usaquen’s restaurants and bars (if you’re not up for clubbing). Usaquen is also a very nice part of town to go on a Sunday afternoon. It used to be a separate town way back so it has a nice feel to it. Also, beware of Colombian men, they’re charming but complete “perros” (meaning womanizers).Posted: October 31, 2022
If you want to do an amusement park, Salitre Magico is cute! Going up the mountain is very picturesque, and I really liked the Emerald museum (they gave us a little private tour that was sweet). The Gold museum, Museo del Oro, is nice but tbh I thought it was a bit boring. La Candelaria is a cute area of the city and has some great food. I recommend going to a Colombian grocery store, it's such an interesting cultural experience to see the differences from our stores.Posted: October 25, 2022
Do a graffiti tour in Bogota! The graffiti was my favorite part of the city. The modern art museum in Bogota was also a good educational experience about the country’s history (heavy, though). Go to the top of Montserrate but make sure you have a WARM coat if you’re coming down after dark 😂 (and the sunset is beautiful to see up there!) I didn’t like Bogotá very much. Colombians say it’s “frío” both for the literal cold as well as the city’s personality.Posted: October 13, 2022
Yes, Bogotá is generally safe for solo female travelers. However, as with any city, it is important to take precautions and be aware of your surroundings. Avoid walking alone at night, and be aware of pickpockets in crowded areas.
Yes, Bogotá is a great destination for solo travelers. The city is generally safe and there are plenty of activities to keep you busy. There are also many female-friendly accommodations and tour operators that cater to solo female travelers.
Bogotá can be expensive for solo travelers, depending on the type of accommodation and activities you choose. Generally, the cost of living in Bogotá is lower than in other major cities in Latin America, but it can still be expensive for solo travelers. Accommodation can range from budget hostels to luxury hotels, and food and entertainment can also be expensive. It is possible to find affordable options, however, so it is worth doing some research before you travel.
