As you head north and Bogotá takes on a more residential feel, the commercial, cultural and culinary offerings by no means diminish. Once a small town that now belongs to the city, Usaquén is one of Bogotá’s most emblematic areas, with its charming colonial architecture, welcoming restaurants and weekend flea market.

Take a stroll around Cedritos, the heart of the north; witness firsthand the beauty and simplicity of a traditional Bogotá neighborhood, with its schools, shopping centers and leisure areas. More than that, you can put yourself at the center of a new bohemian area that is attracting more and more tourists.

If you’re looking for an afternoon escape from the big city, La Calera and Chía are just 17 kilometers away. As well as being a destination de rigueur for cyclists, La Calera is the ideal spot to take some time out with a hot drink while you enjoy the stunning panoramic views of Bogotá.
