If you don't have any plans on a Sunday in Bogota, go to Usaquén Flea Market. Its wonderful to walk around this residential streets filled with sidewalk vendors on Sundays, making it a large outdoor flea market. You can get all the local tiny souvenirs here too!

Usaquén (market and neighborhood): Back in the day, Usaquén was a village separate from Bogotá, with its own churches, plaza and old cobblestone streets. As the city spread like an amoeba, it absorbed Usaquén into its borders, but the neighborhood managed to cling to much of its colonial charm. With old-fashioned narrow streets and some of the best restaurants in Bogotá, Usaquén is absolutely worth a visit. Check it out on Sunday, when the streets and parks are taken over by one of the best craft markets in Bogotá. Usaquén market is an ideal place to pick up some unique Colombian artwork, jewelry, bags and other handcrafts for the friends and family you left back home.

Usaquen was a former town that has been swallowed up by the urban growth of Bogota. You can still get a cool village feel around what used to be the town center. The small market/mall has a nice assortment of handy-craft stores and cafes.

One of my favorite places in Bogota. It was honestly the cutest little enclave of the city and the Sunday market is full of traditional Colombian items. Stop by Bogota Beer Company off the main square and have a drink :)

I stayed in Usaquen for two weeks at a friends house. It's an upscale neighbourhood with big mansions, trees and parks. The central plaza is animated and there are a couple pedestrian streets, multiple restaurants and bars. It is also very safe and I was not afraid to just walk around by myself. There are not that many lodging options around, but one that looked nice is the Art Suites on Cra 5 #117-07. There is also a public market on Sundays which is nice.

Okay, so I a tech geek, I fell in love with this place. The place I was staying in the second time while in Bogotá was right across the street. I took a walk there and feel in love with all the electronics. The only drawback was there was no Apple Products.

This is great place for tech geeks to go. Around is a lot the youth hanging outside as well.

Cute little 'hood in northern Bogota, with a central square, Sunday market, and various restaurants and bars. It feels much more real than Parque 93 and the Zona Rosa, and is a nice change from the sometimes too bohemian Candelaria.

En el norte de la ciudad se encuentra este barrio, uno de los de mayor poder adquisitivo de la capital, que resulta muy pintoresco para recorrer a pie ya que está lleno de restaurantes, bares, centros comerciales, su plaza central e incluso un mercadillo con objetos vintage muy bonitos. Es un plan perfecto para conocer otra realidad, muy diferente a la de otros barrios, dentro de Bogotá y degustar gastronomía internacional en un ambiente relajado.
