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

...class, I’ve not been on a bike in a good 10 years, so it was with some trepidation that I agreed to go on the Bogota Bike Tour with some friends. The shop is a bit of a landmark in La Candelaria, and stocks books for sale and for sw ...

Mud, Mud, Glorious Mud

Advantages: Unique experience, cheap, fun!
Disadvantages: Not a lot of room to move when you're traveling en masse and the whole tour group goes in at once

The Liberator

Advantages: Gorgeous gardens, interesting rooms
Disadvantages: Displays only in English inside

The Casa Museo Quinta de Bolivar is an interesting place, and not just for its mouthful of a name. It’s a building that has had a chequered past, housing everything from a brewery to a hospital to a girls’ school, but is known (and named) for the fact tha ...
