As the capital of Colombia, Bogota often gets a bad rap as a dangerous city, a reputation it earned in the heyday of the drug cartels, and which has been hard to shed. But Colombia’s cities in general, and Bogota specifically, have become much safer in the past 10 years, and now may be the perfect time to visit, while it is safe, but not yet overrun with tourists.
To see many sides of Bogota, enjoy the historical surroundings in La Candelaria and hang out with the posh upper class in Parque de la 93. Don’t overlook the famous El Museo del Oro.
Direct International Flights to Bogota
It may surprise many Americans and Europeans, but Bogota is actually the third largest airline hub in Latin America, behind Mexico City and Sao Paulo. As a main hub for Avianca Airlines as well as several regional carriers, there are more direct flights available from around the world to Bogota than you might expect. If you want to cut out any connections, you can get a direct flight from these cities:
- North America: Atlanta, Fort Lauderdale, Houston, Miami, New York (JFK), Orlando, Cancun, Mexico City, Toronto
- Central America / Caribbean: Aruba, Curacao, Guatemala City, Havana, Panama City, Punta Cana, San Jose (Costa Rica), San Salvador
- South America: Buenos Aires, Caracas, Guayaquil, Lima, Santiago, Sao Paulo, Quito

There are no direct flights from Asia or Australia. The best connecting airport from these areas is Buenos Aires (EZE).
More Cheap Airfare Tips
Airfare to Bogota will be the cheapest on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursday. Mondays are popular with business travellers and weekends are key dates for holidaymakers wanting the longest trips possible – avoid these dates.
Finally, consider traveling on a lesser-known carrier. Avianca is the national airline. However, Air France, TACA and other airlines also stop in Bogota.
The most expensive air tickets to Bogota are found during peak holiday travel times, such as the New Year. Also be aware of national events or festivals, which can also cause ticket prices to rise.
