My boyfriend and I are going to visit Bogota for 3 days in May 2018. We want to do sightseeing during the days and in the evenings we want to check out some nightlife (bars, restaurants). We are fairly seasoned travelers and we understand that we need to always use common safety measures especially in the evening. So we were hoping to get recommendations regarding which neighborhood we should get a hotel/hostel in. We were hoping to find an area from which we can easily go sightseeing. We don't mind taking a bus into the city. We do not need any fancy accommodations, even a hostel will do, as long as the location is safe and beds are clean... it will work for us. We were hoping to find a budget hotel/hostel no more than $50/night. I read some forums and noted that Zona Rosa and Park 93 are safe areas in the north but I am concerned that they are far from the city center and may be difficult to do the sightseeing from. I know that most historic sights are in La Candelaria but most posts do not recommend staying in La Candelaria as it can be unsafe in the evening. So I was hoping to get some recommendations regarding the neighborhoods that are close to sightseeing.
Thank you so much for your help!
