Stop And Smell The Roses

Advantages: Massive so lots to explore, very well laid out, cheap entrance, beautiful surroundings
Disadvantages: A little way out of town

As is customary in this part of the world, Bogota's Botanical Garden is an extension of the largest park in the city - Parque Simon Bolivar. However unlike the similar one in Quito or the one in Mexico City, it is not so much in the middle of a park as it ...

All That Glitters Is Not Gold

Advantages: 55000 pieces of gold over 7 floors
Disadvantages: Lots of odd non-gold stuff too, some dubious translations, lots of similar items on display

The Gold Museum is Bogota's best known museum but though it has a nice central location AND its own Transmilenio stop, it doesn't look like much from the outside. While other museums here are housed in former palaces, or at the very least nice colonial ho ...

Back In The Saddle

Advantages: So much fun and really informative
Disadvantages: Unpredictable Bogota weather could be a downer
