The Colombian capital Bogotá - also known as Santa Fé de Bogotá - is well worth a couple of nights' stay in its own right and shouldn't be overlooked en route for Cartagena or beyond. This cosmopolitan city is also known as the Athens of the Americas, and has received substantial investment in recent years. This has made significant improvements to its aesthetics, security and infrastructure, and an Andean location means that the air is cool and clear.

Original Highlight

There's a real atmosphere of optimism here that's completely contagious. Once a no-go, Bogota is definitely a city on the up.

A note on price

Colombia is very much about the experience, so if you’re happy with more basic accommodation, there are lots of charming haciendas that are full of character - and which won't break the bank. Of course, at the other end of the spectrum, private villas and high end hotels in Cartagena over New Year can easily set you back thousands a night. Learn more about our pricing
