Hello: I am traveling to bogota,colombia in november. Should one only drink bottled water there? Is it advisable to take any shots before traveling there?
Any other health tips would be appreciated. Thank you

Any time I travel to a developing country I go visit a doctor who specializes in travel medicine for:

1) Shots (specific to the region or country or just normal stuff I am due to have);

2) Special medications, such as anti-malarials;

3) General advice - how to minimize chances of catching things like Dengue or plain old food poisoning (while still safely buying from street vendors); and

4) Medicine to take along if things go wrong - usually antibiotics in case I eat something my body doesn't like.

If you go, you should have an itinerary - tropical disease risks vary depending on where you are planning to go. The doctor will need this information...

Hi. Welcome to VT! Your profile is blank, so we don't know where you're from, or if you've every traveled before. As far as the water goes, I would err on the side of caution, and drink bottled water. I got sick in Acapulco (had to spend an entire day inside my room) from drinking the hotel's tap water, after the employees guaranteed that it was "purified." I also ordered drinks "sin hielo"-- without ice. Fruits and vegetables are probably washed in the same water. IMHO, err on the side of caution. How much can it cost?!

I go to Bogota twice a year and always drink bottled water.

No vaccinations necessary if you stay in the larger cities such as Bogota.

Take it easy if you're not used to high altitudes-Bogota is around 9000 ft.

Travel Tips for Bogotá

Colombian Currency

by travelife

I really felt its too bureaucratic to change cash at the airport. First of all, you give the USD to change. And they ask you for your passport and fill out a lengthy form by themselves but they often ask you questions. 'what do you do...bla bla bla' What I have already filled out at the immigration. Second you are asked to give your thumbprint, com'on! Everyone was doing this! Third you are given only the larger banknotes and if you wanna get a change you have to wait again. When I found out the yellow taxis accept USD along with Colombian pesos, it could be easier and quicker if I haven changed at all and would have got my money from ATM instead.

When greeting someone,...

by saritas

When greeting someone, say:
'buenas' and not 'hola' like you saw in your Spanish text.

Say 'chao' (pronounced: 'chow') when you say good bye.
If someone bumps you and expresses pardon say to them: 'fresco, fresco.' This is a Bogota expression that means 'that's alright' or 'not a problem.'

The cradle of the Eldorado myth - Guatavita

by Lodestar

The Guatavita Lake (laguna de la Guatavita) is the cradle of the Eldorado legend. It's a really nice perfectly round lake, around which you can have a nice hike. The nature is beautiful and the hike refreshing. If you go to the lake you shouldn't miss the town of Guatavita, which is just like 4 km away. It's a realy nice little town situated on the banks of another lake and it's full of really nice colonial buildings. Definately a place to go, if you are interested in architecture...

Downtown: visit Siam, el...

by vela_candela

Downtown: visit Siam, el antifaz, Miranda. North: visit Zona Rosa, or the new place Calle 93!! Loads of places to know!!

To avoid the 'ley zanahoria' (places get closed at 1 am) you can go to chia or zipaquira to get out at 2 am.. or ask for an afterparty.. they closed the day after!!! anyway some people have been clever enough and had turned their disco into clubs so they closed at anytime they want... They are all around the city and has a huge variety of music, from techno: Cinema, to an overdosis of Salsa 'Cafe bar salsa' or something like that...
