Casa Platypus

Carrera 3 No 16-28, Bogota, Colombia
1 review

La Casa Platypus is the perfect compliment for your Colombian enchantment—easy to get to and easy to branch out from. Its location is ideal: right on the edge of Las Aguas plaza, where the Candelaria meets Chapinero, a district that feels more metropolitan, with streets that echo 5th Avenue and Broadway. When we visited La Casa, we found ourselves often ...

    Museo del Oro

    9.64 mi from Casa Platypus
    23 reviews

    I loved the way this museum connects gold working and metal working to the cosmology and culture of native Colombians. The connections between the symbolism of the natural world and their magical take on life was really special.

    La Candelaria

    9.09 mi from Casa Platypus
    10 reviews

    La Candelaria is Bogotá old city. There are colonial-style buildings, cobbled streets, centuries-old churches and restaurants that have been serving since the 1800s. With the view of Monserrate, the endless amount of restaurants and cafes, La Candelaria the perfect place to get lost in while in Bogotá.

    Cerros De Monserrate

    Calle 2 # 48, Bogotá, Cundinamarca, Colombia

    Monserrate overlooks Bogota. It has a nice little chapel and a small district of traditional food vendors. The food is alright, but the main attraction to Monserrate is the fantastic panoramic views of Bogota

    You haven't seen Bogota until you've seen it from Monserrate. The church and surrounding area are surreal, and we spent hours walking around and taking pictures. The cable car ride seemed sketchy, but we made it!

    One of my favorite places in Bogota. It was honestly the cutest little enclave of the city and the Sunday market is full of traditional Colombian items. Stop by Bogota Beer Company off the main square and have a drink :)

    The building (a former prison) where the museum is located is worth a visit. There were nice exhibitions, but the museum is kind of disorganized and there where not much explanations in English.

    A lovely colorful church in a very small street in Candeleria/Centro area of Bogota. It is a one of the main attractions of Bogota (but only recently been there to see it after 4 years). It is not crowded like the other tourist spots as it on the outskirts of Candeleria, but easy to walk to. The church has wonderful ...

    Pretty to see at night. The side of the building lights up with many different colors. This is great for photographers wanting to get a nice shot. The drop back is the beat view is at night and it is closed to go up and see the rest of the city. There are other places to go if all you ...

    Nice relaxed microbrewery. They have a good selection of beers, and is a good place to relax and talk with friends. It is a pretty chill environment so if you are looking for something more active this isn't your place

    A gigantic mall in Bogotá. I had no clue I was here. I had stumbled upon it trying to find a bearing of where I was. I ate at the subway inside. Nothing special, just looks nice.

    Looking for young, posh Bogotanos with money to burn on American imports like TGI Friday's? Look no farther than Parque 93. Still, it's a clean, safe park surrounded by restaurants and could do worse.

    The church here is old and at the time I was visiting it was in the process of being rebuilt. It is located in the Chapinero area of Bogotá right off of Calle 63 Transmilenio station. This is not quite the top of the tourist destinations for tourists, but rather a place where the locals go to just hang out. ...

    A mall is a mall, but if you like malls you'll find a good selection of shops, restaurants and a cinema. It's also located right on the popular bar and restaurant haven of Zona T.

    An intersting "cultural" area of the Bogotá. In this area there are a lot clubs and bars. They are not the fancy and fun ones, but where you will find everyday Colombians. It is odd because just a few blocks away is a whole different story. There are a lot of places to eat around here, if you are looking ...

While the place was a little difficult to find because there was a lot of construction around it, the small independently run bike tour is fantastic. Run by journalist from the states, the tours ...

    Every Sunday, in Bogota, some streets close to cars so that cyclists, joggers, roller bladers can freely bike/run/walk. Weekly ciclovías in Bogota are used by approximately 2 million people (30% of citizens) on over 120 km of roads. I biked on Carrera 7 for about 120 streets all the way to La Candelaria and it was super enjoyable. Ciclovia is ...
