There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Gold Museum (Museo del Oro), indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour, explore the world behind art at Museo Botero del Banco de la Republica, and explore the galleries of Barrio La Candelaria.

Take the guesswork out of planning a Bogota vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.
