I've been to Montevideo as well. I happened to be there on Noche Buena (Christmas Eve)... it was CRAZY. People were all out into the streets, throwing alcohol all over one another. While it was interesting to witness, we were definitely trying NOT to get caught up in one of the groups. I would certainly go back.. But with that said, it would probably be with seeing maybe Colonia del Sacramento, or Punta del Este, too.

Bogota and the immediate footpath to the Andean forest, go straight from clubbing to hiking at 5am for dawn - 15 minutes walk from nightlife spot.

City on one side, lake on the other...

Whoa...

I need to get myself there. Like ASAP.

I know this sounds weird to say, but a number of pictures you share, kind of call to mind Iceland's landscapes (though more mountianous), to be honest. I don't think people would ever perceive that. I did an algorithm based on various distances to determine the "Mountain Capital of the World" among major cities because I'm a nerd and because of course I did. Bogota came out on top, and it's increasingly apparent that reality backs that up, too.

Not been to Iceland, it's on the bucket list but I do trek north Wales and Scotland whenever I can and I feel very much at home in Bogota in part because it reminds me a bit of these two naturally wonderful places in the UK.

Colombia for sure ))

- Amazing popular beaches at the Caribbean (Cartagena, Santa Marta -close to Santa Marta the Tayrona National Park-, La Guajira, Capurganá, San Andrés and Provence, San Bernardo Islands, Rosario Islands, etc.)
- Calm and Hided beaches and jungles at the Pacific Coast (Chocó, Nuquí, Isla Gorgona, etc). Throughout the year we have chance to see whales here.
- The Andes – not just for professional hikers – PNN El Cocuy, Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, Nevado de Tolima, etc.)
- Vibrant big cities like Cali, Medellín, Bogotá – bars and parties, gastronomy, culture
- The Amazonas – nature, jungle, wildlife
- Nature around the big cities – hiking tours, waterfalls, flora and fauna, tropical fruits, birdwatching

This is specifically about BOGOTA and other cities in the region. Not Colombia as a whole.

Close to currently, mistakes of ignoring solid overly stereotyping upfront oblivion. For the past 4 years, journey voyages of my own grateful wealthy memories from France, Czech Republic, Austria, Slovakia, Romania, Italy, Monaco, Bulgaria, Sweden, Qatar, UK, Spain!, Morocco. Europe, and Middle East euphoric ecstasy. I am just very glad I have found out on having equal preference to my own planning of travel itinerary routes into Panama City Panama, Bogota Colombia(Whoa! Relative hidden treasure. Erasing past negative bias attitudes), Lima Peru. Outside of those to enter my own life, there are eventually qualifying labels of approval, there is Quito Ecuador, La Paz Bolivia. Tons of captivating interest that reminds me of my own admiration of Spain.
