Bogota airport hotel?

Jump to last reply

We have an 8am flight to Miami out of Bogota on Feb 11 and our ground agent has put us up at the Emporium Hotel in the city. He says it is a 15-20 min drive under normal circumstances. I've read stories about the terrible traffic and am wondering if it would be better to stay closer to the airport. Also should I assume we'll need to get to the airport by 5am, 3 hrs before flight, like we do at other major South American airports? Thanks for any insights.
