About Me
My name is Richard McColl, and I am a journalist, author and hotelier. I love living in Bogota because Bogota is a tough city, there's no doubt about that at all. She makes you work hard for her affections, but once you've made your own world and friends and understand more/less
You have to go to
The Colonial Candelaria area where you can enjoy the city’s past. You’ll find excellent museums, too.
Here's one fun activity you can do
Sunday’s Ciclovia is really enjoyable. Many of Bogota’s roads are blocked off to vehicle traffic and given over to cyclists, bladers, dog walkers, runners on Sundays from 6am until 2pm.
Don't forget to check out one of my favorite places
I'm particularly fond of the la Macarena district, which has a bohemian air to it. There's a great selection of cafés and up-and-coming restaurants along with an eclectic and vibrant atmosphere.
Enjoy a meal at my favorite restaurant
Head to the Puerta Falsa restaurant, which is just off the Plaza de Bolivar. It's not only Bogota’s oldest restaurant, but it also serves the city’s best traditional ajiaco soup.
Here's a doable bucket list for you to do in one day
1.The Museo del Oro
2.The Botero Collection
3.Bogota Bike Tour
4.Check out the Political Graffiti
5.Eat traditional food in the Candelaria
My extra insider tip for you is
Squeeze in some time for Bogota Graffiti Tours--you won't be disappointed. It will provide you with a remarkable insight into the artistic and political movements not only in Bogota but also in Colombia.
My favorite places to be
