Where can you watch a soccer match with 65,000 screaming fans, cycle along closed main streets lined with refreshments, and tour an ornate Gothic church? Fly into Bogota and find out! One of South America’s most modern cities, Bogota can seem at first like a study in contrasts. Take a closer look, however, and you’ll find some constants: Bogotans are proud, polite, and carefree. Flights to Bogota’s El Dorado International Airport (BOG) are ready to take you to the country that has consistently ranked as one of the happiest in the world.
Book one of the hotels near El Dorado International Airport, 9 miles west of the city center, to see the Bogota Botanical Gardens and the Salitre Magico amusement park. Want to get closer to the action? Catch a public bus into the city center. Taxis from the airport are a better choice, as they’re overseen by the airport to ensure service and safety. Within the city, taxis can be more of a gamble, but can be ordered safely through your hotel desk or the phone number they provide you. Better yet, ditch the motor and hop on a rented bike! Pedaling your way through the city is an easy and smart way to see the sights. Cheap flights to Bogota will leave you plenty of pesos to spend on a guided bike tour. On Sundays, the main roads close and bikes take over for the Ciclovia—a fun and original Bogota tradition.
This city perched in the mountains reaches for the sky in more ways than one. Find the best Bogota flight deals on Travelocity and join the excitement. Not sure where to stay? Reserve airfare and hotel with our vacation bundles in Bogota and let us help. We’ll have you dancing the salsa in no time.
