Many specialized websites have recommended to us things to do and sites to visit in Bogota. However, we took on the task of asking people on social networks (Bogota residents, tourists, and visitors) for reasons to visit Bogota. And this is what they said to us:

  1. “It is the city with the highest number of bicycle lanes in the world.”
  2. “The flowers arriving in Paloquemado, accompanied by a breakfast, is the most beautiful and fascinating experience.”
  3. “Monserrate, Guadalupe, and the Divine Child are unique places in the world.”

  5. “Within 30 minutes from Bogota there are natural reserves, salt cathedrals, and archaeological sites to visit.”
