Bogotá — Now that low-cost JetBlue and Spirit fly to the capital alongside most major U.S. airlines, Bogotá is opening up to a diverse crowd intent on discovering one of South America’s great cities. Colombia’s capital has big attractions like Gold and Botero Museums and the Salt Cathedral, a restaurant scene that is better than the more talked about one in Cartagena, and neighborhoods that are increasingly gentrifying.

Why Go

Cutting-edge museums, bohemian enclaves, one of Latin America’s best restaurant scenes, and a growing number of stylish accommodations.
