If you're looking for graceful architecture and quaint piazzas, go to Rome. Bogota is having none of it. It is, however, a fascinating city with llamas (imported from Peru) walking the streets, cheap, delicious food, and its own heartfelt, caliente vibe. Creative, decadent nightlife adds to the fun: I went to probably the best Halloween party ever here in an abandoned warehouse. The music, costumes, and energy proved that what Bogota may lack in architectural charm, it makes up for in captivating humanity.

The city is beautiful, surrounded by the Andes and full of culture, history, and awesome food. I felt safe everywhere we went, even at night. The best part, though, was the people. Everyone was extremely helpful, even in the less touristy areas.

I like Bogota, it is a city that has a lot of culture. The best thing that makes Bogota is the poeple. I have never meet so many nice friendly people in such a large city in my life.
Bogota is very widespread and can be hard to get around. Do not worry, there is an abundance of cabs everywhere and a very convenient bus system that acts as the public transit "metro".
Bogota is hard on vegetarians, I will admit that now, but amazing choice of foods, especially in the north in Parque 93 area. There is a lot of history to the east in Candeleria area.
There is just a lot to do in Bogota, a very modern city with some of the MOST friendliest people I have ever meet.

Bogota is always cloudy and somewhat chilly. Out of the 8 times I have been there or through there, I don't think it has never been sunny. The weather has a lot to whether or not I am going to enjoy my stay or not...lol However, if you are coming to do business in Colombia, Bogota is the place to be.

Located east of the Andes, Bogota is Colombia's capital and largest city with a population over around seven million. When I was there in 2009, I noticed that the sidewalks and streets were clean, and there seemed to be an armed soldier on just about every street. I loved the city, and would go back if given the chance.
