Arghhh, Altitude in Bogota is High

Jump to last reply

We're on the last leg of our 17 day vacation and we arrived in Bogota yesterday. After spending 10 days on the Colombian coast, I was a little concerned about the altitude, but we spent 3 nights in a colonial town (Villa de Leyva) outside of Bogota and I was more or less ok. But man, am I feeling it now! Maybe some of it is pollution-related? My legs feel like they weigh about 150 pounds each and I feel mildly sick to my stomach after eating. Luckily we are staying in a nice hotel where I can relax between sightseeing excursions.
