Sunday in Simon Bolivar Park


Bogotá, at 2,600 meters above sea level, actually has a beach - here in Simon Bolivar Park.

Simon Bolivar Park, in northwest Bogotá, is the city's biggest park - larger even than New York's Central Park. Simon Bolivar Park, named after the leader of the revolution against Spain, actually consists of several smaller 'sub-parks', including Parque de los Novios (Lovers' Park), a library with a park around it, a sports park, the Botanical Gardens and Central Park (pictured here), the largest of them.

Simon Bolívar is the scene of many cultural events, including Salsa al Parque and Rock al Parque, which is the largest free musical event in Latin America. It lasts three days and attracts bands from all over the world.

The Best Beaches in Colombia

Bordered by the Pacific Ocean, Caribbean Sea, Amazon River, and full of countless other rivers, lakes and streams, Colombia has no shortage of places to get your feet wet. Mostly I love a good adventure vacation where I can raft down a river, swim in the Amazon, kayak on the Pacific Ocean or go caving. However, every once in awhile you just need a good beach vacation. Unfortunately short of leaving the mainland for San Andres Island, the beaches in Colombia leave something to be desired. Many of the public beaches get quite dirty, some of them filling with trash due to the tides, and even the nice ones are full of people trying to sell you something at any given moment. Not exactly relaxing.

Colombia for Big People: Cartagena (Minus the Secret Service)

For mature visitors, Cartagena is the number one place of interest within Colombia, just as New York is for the United States, or Paris is for France. It is not the capital, but it is the city that offers itself as both a seaside resort as well as a picturesque historic destination.   For this reason, you will find no shortage of articles about its attractions, but I hope to give you a more practical guide to La Heroica (the Heroic), as Cartagena is known here.
