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.
Kick off your visit on the 3rd (Thu): take in the exciting artwork at Barrio La Candelaria and then explore the world behind art at Museo Botero del Banco de la Republica.

Bucaramanga — 2 nights

City of Parks

A tour of Bucaramanga may yield little evidence that it dates back as far as 1622.
Get some historical perspective at Cathedral of the Holy Family and Capilla Nuestra Senora de las Nieves. Step out of the city life by going to Club Campestre Bucaramanga and Canon Del Chicamocha. There's still lots to do: browse the different shops at Centro Comercial Cacique, get advice or help at La Casa del Libro Total, explore the world behind art at Museo de Arte Moderno de Bucaramanga, and browse the fresh offerings at Plaza de Mercado Guarin.

Colombia travel guide

4.2
Historic Sites · Landmarks · Specialty Museums
Diverse in terms of landscapes, climates, and cultures, Colombia remains one of South America's least explored tourist destinations, overshadowed by its more popular southern neighbors. Combining the best of what the continent has to offer, a vacation in Colombia allows you to blend outdoor adventures with tours of picture-perfect cobblestoned towns dating back to the colonial era. Tourists on a Colombia holiday can easily hop from sun-kissed coastal spots to the hilly coffee-growing region, where thriving plantations quickly give way to a landscape of snow-covered volcanic peaks and the paramo--alpine ecosystems sheltering some of the rarest plants growing above the continuous forest line.
