8 hour layover in Bogota

Jump to last reply

I will be traveling with my husband from Houston to Lima in March, with a long layover in Bogota on the way. I have read that 8 hours is enough time to see the city, but I was hoping for suggestions regarding a "route" to take. We arrive in Bogota at 6:00am on a Sunday, departing at 1:45pm. With travel time to/from the airport, along with time to go back through security, I expect we have about 5 hours of exploring available. Is that a good estimate?

We want to see the "highlights" of the city, but do not expect to enter many places (museums, art galleries, etc). If there are one or two that are worth entering and will not take much time to experience, that is something we would like to know about. Otherwise, we are content marveling at the architecture and design from the plazas. We also love parks, gardens, fountains, etc., so a route that takes us through something like that would be wonderful!

I would appreciate any advice! Thank you!
