Bogota

Athens of South America

Colombia's heart and soul, Bogota has earned the nickname "Athens of South America" thanks to its abundance of universities, libraries, and lower-level schools.
Take a break from Bogota with a short trip to Catedral de Sal de Zipaquira in Zipaquira, about 54 minutes away. There's much more to do: examine the collection at Gold Museum (Museo del Oro), admire the natural beauty at Jardin Botanico de Bogota Jose Celestino Mutis, admire the masterpieces at Museo Botero del Banco de la Republica, and make a trip to Teatro Mayor Julio Mario Santo Domingo.

To find maps, ratings, reviews, and more tourist information, go to the Bogota trip builder.

Traveling from Bogota in November, expect Santa Marta to be much hotter, temps between 38°C and 28°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 30th (Fri) to allow time for travel back home.
