Take a trip back in time to the center of Bogotá, where historic allure seeps from the façades, museums and traditional tea rooms of La Candelaria and the warmth of a good cup of coffee offers the perfect respite from the early morning snap.

A 30-minute walk north will take you to La Macarena and Bosque Izquierdo, home to writers, poets and artists, an infectiously magical neighborhood, rife with independent stores, restaurants and galleries. You’re also likely to stumble upon architectural gems like the Torres del Parque from Rogelio Salmona, one of the city’s urban icons.

What better way to end your day than strolling through the Centro Internacional, with its numerous walkways and little squares where you can marvel at the sunset reflecting off the windows of the capital’s first modern buildings.
