Urban Arts Scene: Bogotá, Colombia
For a more urban—but also exotic—experience, head south to the capital of Colombia, Bogotá, which some say is poised to become the next Buenos Aires. Bogotá’s historic center is La Candelaria, where the recently reopened Museo del Oro now houses a 6,500-piece collection of pre-Columbian gold coins and other works of art. And at the nearby Fernando Botero Museum, you’ll find more than a hundred sculptures and paintings by the artist. In the Zona Rosa district, the Sofitel Bogotá Victoria Regia is a 102-room property near the city’s art galleries. Doubles from $340.
