I am sure a guided graffiti tour is fantastic, but just walking La Candelaria is the bomb. Fabulous old buildings painted to bits. Everywhere you look, there it is! Make sure you have lots of camera space. Super bohemian and funky.

You have to walk around Candelaria if you go to Bogota . The buildings and the culture are amazing and there is something to look at around every corner.

Walking through the narrow streets and streets of colorful historic houses and several bars, restaurants and cafes is a delight. During the day this part of the city is full of life!

Day time fun yes. A lot of restaurants and things to do/see. At night, the demographic changes and it becomes a little shadier. It is not too far from the rough red-light district. I would caution walking around here in the evenings and night time....More
