Travelers will find Bogota, Columbia's sprawling capital city is set against the Andes, and is a city which is steeped in history. The Casa de Moneda and the Museo Nacional both house pottery and artifacts from pre-Columbian history, as well as artwork up through the 20th century. The natural beauty of Monte Negro's coffee plantations, and the colonial architecture of Cartagena harken to an earlier era. Columbia's regional food, including arepas, chorizo and empanadas, all of which are uniquely delicious.
Although the city has made efforts to improve its public transit in recent years, the best way to explore Bogota is by car. El Dorado International Airport (BOG) offers car rentals from several major companies. Reserving your car ahead of time will ensure smooth traveling and cheaper rates, meaning that you can travel on your own schedule. Make sure to check with your rental company regarding Bogota's traffic congestion ordinances which may apply to your vehicle. Most of Bogota's visitor lodgings are in the historic La Candelaria district.
