Bogotá is Colombia's cultural hub, It’s an engaging and vibrant capital surrounded by Andean peaks and known for Its sophisticated, urban cool. The city's beating heart is La Candelaria, the cobbled historic downtown where most travelers gravitate. Here, a mess of preciously preserved colonial buildings house museums, restaurants, hotels and bars peppered amid 300-year-old homes, churches and convents. Nearly all of Bogotá's famous attractions are here – radiating out from Plaza de Bolívar – and gorgeous Cerro de Monserrate is just east.
The city's grittier sides sit south and southwest, where working-class barrios are known for their salt of the earth traditions and attractions. In the posh north, you'll find boutique hotels and ritzy locals visiting hip entertainment districts such as the Zona Rosa and Zona G. Here, rust-tinted sunsets dramatically bounce off the bricks of upper-class Bogotá's Andes-hugging residential buildings – a cinematic ceremony that begins the city's uproarious evenings.
