Museum
“Museo del Oro or Gold Museum is amazing. It will show you the techniques indigenous people were using, to create gold articles. There you will also learn why they built them and their way to understand the universe”

History Museum
“A Must :-) It is the oldest in the country and one of the oldest in the continent, built in 1823. Its fortress architecture is built in stone and brick. The plant includes arches, domes and columns forming a sort of Greek cross over which 104 prison cells are distributed, with solid wall façade. The museum houses a collection of over 20,000 pieces including works of art and objects representing different national history periods. Permanent exhibitions present archeology and ethnography samples from Colombian artefacts dating 10,000 years BC, up to twentieth century indigenous and afro- Colombian art and culture.”

“You mustn't miss out on this. An eclectic experience of food drinks, music and a particular scenery. Worth every penny. Go to either Andres DC in Bogotá (Zona T at El Retiro Shopping Mall ) or to Andrés Carne de Res Chía for the best party of your life ”

“The original one is in Chia (about an hour's drive but the place is worth it!). Great ambiance for dining and partying/dancing in a fun setting. They have another place, Andrés DC, in walking distance yet it is not as good as the one in Chia. Ideally make reservations or arrive early. Plan to leave late! Or, should you be going with children, go at lunch time.”

“Botero is a figurative artist and sculptor from Medellín, Colombia. He’s known for his unique style, also called by some as Boterismo. He’s considered one of the most recognized living artists in Latin American, therefor he is the most acclaimed Colombian artist. In 2000 he donated and art collection to the Banco de la República (Bank of the Republic), which became the Botero Museum. This collection is composed by 208 art pieces, 123 are of his own work and the remaining 85 are international artists from his private collection, including 14 Impressionist paintings (including oils by Monet, Renoir, Degas, and Pissarro), four Picassos, and works by Dali, Miro, Chagall, Ernst, de Kooning, Klimt, Rauschenberg, Giacometti, and Calder.”

Café
“La Puerta Falsa is a Bogotá institution and perhaps the oldest restaurant and snack bar in the city. It isn’t just a restaurant, it’s an experience for anyone looking for authentic and traditional Colombian fare.You can’t miss out on their hot chocolate or agua de panela. Even though they serve small plates, we suggest going with an empty stomach and trying a little bit of everything they have to offer. Sun: 6:00 am - 9:00 pm Mon: 6:00 am - 9:00 pm Tue: 6:00 am - 9:00 pm Wed: 6:00 am - 9:00 pm Thu: 6:00 am - 9:00 pm Fri: 6:00 am - 9:00 pm Sat: 6:00 am - 9:00 pm”
