What we’ll do
Our day will start in the bohemian La Macarena neighborhood where we will sample authentic Colombian Ajiaco soup, shop for exotic fruit at the market, and visit our favorite bakery for dessert.
From here we will take the bus to Chapinero, known as the hipster area of Bogotá. In this neighborhood, you’ll find Bogotá’s under 30 creatives, the LGBT community, young professionals, and students. It’s also the neighborhood that we live in! While in Chapinero, we are going to take polaroid photos in front of street art for you to take home, stop by a local vegan-Colombian eatery, do a mojito making workshop at our apartment terrace, and visit a beautiful spot to try Colombian coffee.
Then we will take the bus to a stunning rooftop view in the lively Parque 93 neighborhood at sunset to try a local Colombian liquor, and this is where our day will end.
Throughout the day we are also going to pass through strategic photo opt points with street art, city views, and trendy food spots so we are available to take your photo any time as well as give you tips on taking better Instagram photos.
