As for many Travellers, Bogotá was where our columbian adventure begun. At first, we just stayed one night and went to Salento straight away as we knew that we would have to come back to meet friends anyway. I’m not gonna lie here: Bogotá haven’t been one of our highlights. Still, here’s a choice of things we did and the Hostel we stayed at:
- Swiss Hostal Martinik: We’ve chosen this hostel as the location is perfect. It’s right in Candelaria, the historic center of Bogota. Besides the location I have to admit that we didn’t really feel the vibe of the place. Nothing bad but also nothing too good. Location is worth to consider it anyway in my opinion.
- Museo del Oro: We heard awesome things about this place and decided that this is a must see. In the end it felt like any other regular museum. Not my cup of tea but if you are interested in gold and the whole history involved you should go.
Mount Monserrate: We decided to take the cable car to get up there. The Monserrate is a mountain of almost 3152 meter. First of all: view was nice. The shops up there are very touristic though and we read that you should not be there or walk down the mountain after 3pm, which made the experience a bit stressful.
