Bogota:
Also known as Santa Fé de Bogotá or the Athens of the Americas, Bogota is set at an altitude of over 2600m or 8000 feet with high ranges of the cordillera to the east. You may need some time to adjust to this altitude, especially if you are arriving from lower parts of the country or flying in.

Most of the sights of the city are in the historic central neighborhood of La Candelaria. The Plaza de Bolivar is the principal square in the city and it is where the seat of both Federal and Local governments are housed. The buildings in the surrounding areas are built in the colonial style with wide-eaved balconies. On the main square, you may visit the First Cathedral, built back in the late 1500's. Bogotas most breathtaking museum is the Museo del Oro (Gold Museum).

Downtown Bogota is filled with shops, businessess, cafés, and the banking district. It is an interesting area to stroll around. Most of the best hotels, restaurants, cafés, and boutiques are located in the Northern end of the city.

Cartagena:
With just under 1 million inhabitants, Cartagena is the most popular tourist resort town in Colombia. It is divided into two main parts: the Ciudad Antigua (Old City) and the Ciudad Nueva (New City). Cartagena used to be a popular place for the privateers of the Caribbean (the most famous being Sir Francis Drake). Accordingly, the Spanish invested heavily in thick walls to protect this important harbour from attacks.
The walls are over 10km long and enclose the pleasant Ciudad Antigua, built in 1533 along a beautiful Caribbean harbor. It’s very pleasant to stroll down the narrow streets and take in the stylish colonial architecture. The cathedrals and palaces face cool shady plazas, where you can buy little cups of coffee (tinto) and watch the world go by.
Around Cartagena some very fine beaches are to be found, where you can get a tan under the tropical sun.
Nightlife in Cartagena is quite lively, as there are a number of bars with good (Salsa) music and cheap beer. Finding a decent place to eat is never difficult, and restaurants specialize in Caribbean and Creole dishes.
