I Visited Bogota in July 2018, I had a direct flight from Quito Ecuador. A round trip Air ticket was less expensive than a one particular way ticket from Quito to Bogota.

Hotel – I stayed at Hostal Casa Cubil, Private space was $40 a evening, I loved my keep there, verify for discounts

Day 1 in Bogota

I met up with a buddy by way of Couchsurfing and we went exploring about town, mainly Zona Rosa region. Just after walking all afternoon/evening we ended obtaining dinner at a empanadas street meals location, I had some sort of a egg cheese empanadas for beneath a dollar.

At the time of writing this 1 U$D = 2900 Colombian Pesos.

Taxis are everywhere and have meters, not as well highly-priced.
