Bogota is Colombia’s diverse high altitude capital city, with over 8 million people living at around 2,640m (8,660ft) above sea level. We visited the big city as part of our big trip in Colombia, mainly to party at Theatron – the largest gay club in Latin America. We also discovered a whole array of different activities for couples ranging from adventure sports, romantic restaurants, boat rides and more. This is our 5 favourite romantic things to do in Bogota, following our trip here.
Trekking, Rafting and Rappelling Together
Bogota is nestled within the Colombian Andes, surrounded by canyons, waterfalls and pretty stunning vistas, making it ideal for couples who love adventure. We did a full day trekking, rappelling and rafting tour with GoBe, which we highly recommend. This included trekking through the Tiger Creek mountain range, rappelling down the Barandillas waterfall and rafting on the Rio Negro.
Rappelling was our most memorable experience from our trip to Bogota. As first timers, it was initially quite daunting, especially when you look down at the drop beneath you. But as the adrenaline kicks in, your confidence quickly grows and you push on ahead, just like Spiderman. It’s absolutely awesome! The tour we did with GoBe included all transportation from our hotel in Bogota as well as all equipment, lunch and an English speaking guide.
