5 Things to Do as a First-Timer in Bogotá

5 Things to Do as a First-Timer in Bogotá: (1) Climb Monserrate — by cablecar or foot — to reach 3,150 meters (over 10,000 feet) and get the capital’s best view. (2) Visit the Museo del Oro (Gold Museum) to see one of the Americas’ finest pre-Columbian collections or Museo Botero for oversized sculptures by Colombia’s greatest artist. (3) Eat at Andrés Carne de Res, an eclectic steakhouse and local institution. (4) Drink aguardiente, a firewater that few foreigners love but all remember. (5) Go to the Catedral de Sal (Salt Cathedral), a massive church carved deep in a salt mine 50 kilometers (31 miles) north of Bogotá — but well worth the trip
