About the City

Bogotá

Live the sabrosura, the flavor, the vibe, the motion of Bogotá, Colombia's capital. From world famous coffee to the cumbia dance, from modern skyscrapers to Spanish colonial architecture, Bogotá is a dynamic blend of the historical and the new. Take in a beautiful view of the city from the famous Monserrate cathedral. View Colombian painter Fernando Botero's works in person, at his museum in the historic Candelaria neighborhood. Attend one of Bogota's many art fairs, fashion weeks, and festivals or spend a night out on the town with new friends. A thriving economic center of about 8 million people, Bogotá sits at the helm of Colombia's revival and transformation. 

About the Country

Colombia

With the densest biodiversity per square kilometer in the world and access to the Andes Mountains, the Amazon rain forest, and the Caribbean and Pacific coastlines, Colombia is by definition a blend of climates, ecosystems, and cultures. Given the amazing range of natural attractions here, it’s no wonder the country is an up-and-coming adventure tourism destination. Even if you’re not a big outdoors explorer, Colombia has plenty of great experiences in store for you: watch the whales breaching in the ocean off the western coast, learn how to salsa dance in Cali, breathe in the fragrance of Medellin’s annual  flower festival, or spend a day touring a coffee plantation. Colombia has something for everyone. Come see for yourself.

Local Highlights

Ciclovia Sundays

Every Sunday and public holiday, Bogotá closes its normally crowded roads to drivers, turning them into pedestrian highways. Residents take over the streets with their dogs, bikes, and roller blades. Rent a bike and join them to see Bogotá in a whole new way! The city boasts the largest network of bike routes in Latin America: 250 miles.  


Rock in the Park

Who isn’t up for a free music festival? Bogotá hosts the annual 3-day rock music festival Rock al Parque every August at Simón Bolívar Park, Bogotá’s largest greenspace and entertainment complex, located in the heart of the city.  


Andres Carne de Res

One of the most famous steakhouses in Colombia stands just fifteen minutes away from your campus. Stop there for a delicious dinner on a weeknight and come back on the weekend to see the steakhouse transform into a night club.  


Yoga al Aire

Need some refuge from the crazy city life? Head to Parque 93 on the weekend for Yoga al Aire, a free yoga series held Saturday mornings in the park.  


Drink Coffee Like a Local

You can’t live in Colombia without getting your coffee fix. Try out coffee shops like Azahar or Amor Perfecto, local cafes famous for their coffee. Bring your school work to the bakery Masa, and enjoy an almond croissant and coffee while you study.
