Essential Guide to Bogotá
Two colors will be top of mind after a visit to Colombia's capital city: green and gold. The green of the city's parks and South America's Andes in the distance. The gold at the Museo del Oro. Spend time walking around the city, there's plenty to marvel at over the colonial architecture along the way. Two day trips from Bogotá that, really, aren't optional: Lake Guatavita, for natural beauty and the stories of chieftains and conquistadors; and The Salt Cathedral, sculpted from the empty chambers of a working salt mine.
