What to Expect
After your guide picks you up at El Dorado International Airport during your layover, head to the La Candelaria neighborhood with Spanish colonial and baroque architectural styles to start your customizable tour. From there, head to Bogota’s Plaza de Bolívar to check out prominent landmarks, including the Presidential Palace, the Primatial Cathedral, and more. All entrance fees are included with the tour. Next, choose either lunch at a Colombian restaurant and/or a visit to the mountaintop sanctuary of Monserrate. If time permits, stop at the Botero Museum.
