i just love this city, or town, many nice restaurants, or just to go for a glass of wine, or just to walk around, the small streets are so colorful and beautiful.
We started our exploration of Bogota here. It's a great neighborhood to take a walk and experience local culture and food. The kids enjoyed feeding the pigeons and eating ice cream. The Botero Museum is in walking distance from here.
Nice area for a walk through historic buildings. Downside is the large amount of transient homeless leading to questionable safety. Very good nightlife with lots of pubs, theme restaurants. Not easy to find parking, must take cab or uber.
