    • Bogota Dangers and Colombia travel

      by Twtp73 Online Now Jun 22, 2016 at 11:23 PM

      What should a tourist be worried and/or cautious about when traveling to Bogota and Colombia in general? Also, any information on places to see, best/safest ways to transport around Colombia (especially up to cities on the North coast), good places to stay (more than likely hostels), etc?

      I arrive at El dorado at 1 pm on Sunday and leave 9 am for Leticia.
      is it better to stay at a hotel like Aloft near the airport or at Hilton downtown? Does the time frame leave much to see or walk around? Candaleria por ejemplo?
      Thank you

    • Arriving @ Bogota midnight and leaving early morning

      I was not thinking (clearly) when I made the booking but anyways, here it is:
      Arriving @ Bogota 11:25p.m. Next flight is @ 6a.m. So, essentially, I have 5 hrs to kill. My options are look for a place to get some rest within the airport OR nearby OR take a cab and drive around for 1-2 hrs before getting back to the airport.

      Can use some feedback for either option. Thanks …

      So I have a friend who's going to Bogota in August 2014 (until December) for an exchange.
      I am seriously thinking of visiting her in September, but before, I would like to know what is worth visiting around.
      So according to you, what are the nice places to go to in Bogota? Or any other interesting city in Columbia in general?

      I would like to really discover the columbian culture and traditions, not just staying in the city. So please feel free to let me know if you have any good idea! Thank you all!

      Any of you experts can figure out for me - a 4 1/2 day tour of Bogota?
      Museums, restaurants, major sights, different neighborhoods, some local shopping but not that much artesanias, Leather and some custom jewelry. Art - paintings if not expensive.
      Even a bit out of the city - if time permits.

    • First time in Bogota

      by alisonclough Online Now Jan 6, 2014 at 12:55 AM

      Hi. Me and my partner will be visiting Bogota for the first time this April. I was wondering if you could give me some advice on the best areas to stay and possibly some good hostels. We are a young couple so want to enjoy the best of the nightlife and also the sights that the city has to offer during the day . We are travelling on a budget so are not looking to stay in five star accommodation but want to be comfortable and above all feel safe, therefore want to avoid staying in areas that could potentially be dangerous. Thank you!!!

      To see the Manchester United

      by Jorge_villlobos Online Now Nov 11, 2013 at 6:42 PM

      Hello friends, we have been thinking with a group of friends on where to go on this holiday season. Definitely we are going to go to Manchester to watch United play against West Ham United and Arsenal at the "Old Trafford". Is there a problem with the entrance to the stadium, by the fact of being a foreigner and have never gone there?.

      We also need a hotel to stay, but it's not too fancy, we have a limited budget. We found a good price "center polar Manchester street", you recommend us?

      We also want to know what other things can be done in time we hope to stay (December 18 - January 6).

      Thank you guys!
