Also known as the Athens of the Americas, Bogota, the capital of Colombia, is situated at a height of 2700 m in the Andean Highlands in central Colombia and is home to 7.8 million people.
Dry and rainy seasons alternate throughout the year, keeping the average temperature at 14ºC. However, pronounced climatic changes may occur due to the influence of the El Nino and La Nina phenomena.
Of late, a ‘people first’ urban planning strategy has resulted in quality mass transit and more parks, most of which have facilities for concerts, plays and movies.
Bogota is testimony to the heterogeneity within Colombia: futuristic architecture, a vibrant cultural and intellectual life, splendid colonial churches and brilliant museums juxtaposed with shanty towns, drug dealers and traffic jams.
