Hey guys, so I'm looking to travel to possibly central america and/or Colombia for 2 weeks. I have some questions and doubts, maybe someone could offer me some useful advice.

1. Bogota

How is it there? I love big cities, with neat architecture, good street food, and nightlife, museums etc. However, from research I've done, it appears that people make out Bogota to be boring? I've been to Mexico City and New York City for seven days each, and found both to be very exciting and thrilling, how does Bogota rank up in the excitment factor? And is a week to long? Also, any worthy day trips out side the capital?

Is La Calendaria district best to be avoided becuase of security concerns? For me that would be a major blow, becuase the most interesting architecture is always in the historic core..

2. Beaches

I want to spend time on the caribbean coast, with stunning beaches, you know, those with white sands and crystal clear blue waters and that are safe for swimming..Im used to Riviera Maya beaches in Mexico, so I'd like that quality.

I'd be going on a tight budget, hosteling for 2 weeks, split between a city and a beach in Late August to early September. I'd be going by myself, male, and pretty fluent in Spanish.

THanks in advance!
