COLOMBIA

#TRAVELWITHPRIDE

Colombia Nestled among verdant Andean peaks almost 9,000 feet above sea level is the misbehaving metropolis of Bogotá, Colombia’s capital city. Despite boasting well-preserved colonial heritage, Bogotá’s sordid past of drugs and violence has meant that the city has often been avoided in favor of safer haunts. But now, thanks to decreased drug production, increased safety, and a growing culture of boutiques, chic hotels and top-notch restaurants, Bogotá is quickly becoming one of South America’s trendiest capitals. Parallel to this, Colombia’s gay scene is booming, and gay Bogotá is leading the movement, alongside equally hedonistic Medellín, with all-night parties centred in Chapinero. While care should still be taken in less-developed areas, queer life in Bogotá is out and proud, underlined by a colourful social tapestry on full display during the carnivalesque Pride parade in July. Just as colourful is Bogotá’s culinary scene, which brings hearty regional classics such as cheesy arepas, wrapped tamales and empanadas to the deserved attention of the world. Enjoy the visit, we take care of the rest #travelwithpride
