Welcome to the “Top Attractions in Bogota” blog.
Bogota, Colombia is no longer one of the best kept secrets in Latin America. The word is spreading out that Bogota is a city full of culture, history, nightlife, shopping, museums and warm-hearted people.
The dangerous reputation that the city had back in the 80’s is long gone and if you take normal precautions, as they should be taken in any major city, Bogota and its surroundings could steal your heart.
I will do a weekly posting of a recommended top attraction so that you can have a well-informed guide about the city. Feel free to comment on any of the postings.
Hope you enjoy this blog.
