How to Spend 2 Days in Bogotá

How to Spend 2 Days in Bogotá

Two days in the Colombian capital gives you plenty of time to see the essential sights, visit one of the city’s excellent museums, enjoy the local nightlife, and still have time left over to soak up the sights of the surrounding countryside for a more comprehensive Colombian experience. Read on for tips about how to spend your 48 hours in Bogotá.

Day 1: Around Town

Morning: Get up early to beat the crowds at Monserrate, the hill overlooking Bogotá; ride the cable car to the top for some early morning views, then head back into the city for a walking tour of La Candelaria, the cobbled cultural hub of the city. Visit landmarks such as Bolívar Square (Plaza de Bolívar) and the Gabriel García Márquez Cultural Center, or, to cover more ground, opt for a bike tour instead.

Afternoon: Take the afternoon to visit one of the city’s top museums. Art lovers won’t want to miss the Museo Botero, where some 100 works by the Colombian sculptor and painter are on display, while history buffs might want to explore the pre-Columbian treasures at the Gold Museum (Museo del Oro).

Night: The neighborhood of La Macarena ranks among Bogotá’s top foodie hot spots. Treat yourself to a gourmet food tour of the bohemian area, stopping at multiple eateries to sample traditional Colombian fare accompanied by a cold beer or cocktail.

Day 2: Natural Wonders

Morning: This morning, venture just outside the capital city to experience one of Colombia’s most unique attractions: a subterranean cathedral carved from a salt mine. Guided visits to the Zipaquirá Salt Cathedral take you inside the mine to hear more about the history of this architectural wonder.

Afternoon: Many day trips to the Salt Cathedral include an afternoon visit to picturesque Laguna de Guatavita, a mountain lake that’s both an important indigenous religious site and the supposed location of the treasures of El Dorado. Snap some photos of the legendary lake, or stroll through the whitewashed town of Guatavita.

Night: Finish off your trip with a night out on the town in Bogotá. Depending on your interests, you might opt for a salsa lesson and dancing at some local hot spots or a nightclub crawl through Zona Rosa and Parque 93. Alternatively, head out of town to experience popular—and enormous—Andrés Carne de Res, an almost 3-square-mile (7-square-kilometer) venue that offers dinner, dancing, drinks … and a climbing wall.
