CULTURE VULTURES
The area is bursting with cultural spaces, like the Virgilio Barco library, Ágora convention center and Corferias, a business and event center which hosts fairs and festivals year round, including FILBo, the Bogotá book fair.

GETTING IN SHAPE
If you’re into sports, don’t miss the opportunity to train alongside some of the country’s best athletes at the Coldeportes Centro de Alto Rendimiento, Colombia’s most important sporting complex.

MODERN COMFORTS
With the international airport and a number of important business centers nearby, this area has attracted a whole host of luxury hotel chains, including Grand Hyatt, Sheraton, Marriott and Movich.

STRIKE!
Kick the routine in the company of family and friends by going bowling at la Bolera El Salitre. With 20 lanes, you can set up a tournament and enjoy an afternoon’s fun for all ages.
