The El Dorado International Airport (BOG) in Bogota serves as the main entry point for many arriving in Colombia. Venture to the capital city's historic La Candelaria district and visit the Botero Museum and the Gold Museum. Outdoor adventures include a trip to nearby Mt. Monserrate for a day of hiking. Unusual natural wonders found in the country include the colorful Cano Cristales River, in the National Natural Park La Macarena.
The taxi service is heavily regulated by the airport. Visitors need merely provide destination information and are coupled with a driver and a voucher for the exact cost. Public buses also provide transportation, and various rental companies offer their services from within the facility for anyone preferring that option. Drive toward Bogota by entering Highway Calle 26 and heading south into the city.
Hardcore trekkers enjoy the challenge of traveling to The Lost City, or La Ciudad Perdida, through the jungles of Tayrona National Park. Discovered in 1976, the ancient settlement was once occupied by Tayrona Indians. The less adventurous may explore a similar site known as Little Town, which stands on the top of the mountain behind the popular Cabo San Juan campsite in the park. Colombia is renowned for coffee and visitors have the chance to tour plantations, and learn about the processes involved in making the popular beverage in Fusagasuga or Hacienda.
