We’re Joey & Giovanni, local bloggers behind this website, Bogotivo.com – where we write about the best places to eat, drink, party, and sleep in Colombia’s cool capital city. While one of us is American and the other Venezuelan, we love our adopted home of Bogotá and showing visitors the hippest spots around. Consider us your new friends that are here to help you discover the secrets of the city through experiencing the foods, drinks, streets, people, and culture on our Bogotá Bites: Urban Food Tour.

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.
