Bogotá is projected more and more as a cosmopolitan city and aspires to become a major accessible tourist destination in Latin America. Today it is also a promising business epicenter.
Undoubtedly, the Colombian capital is an entry to understanding the culture of the country. Its historic center is full of colonial houses and houses one of the best museums in the world, where pieces from different indigenous cultures are exhibited.
Head straight for the Gold Museum. Keep in mind that the duration of the visit is usually an hour and a half minimum. It is worth going slowly because in this place archaeological pieces from the pre-Columbian period are preserved.
The Bank of the Republic of Colombia website indicates that the ramp entrance is located on Calle 16. In addition, it specifies the following information on accessibility:
- Elevators allow easy access to all the exhibitions.
- The accessible restroom for wheelchair users is on the first floor. There is also a restroom for children on the 4th floor.
- Visitors can borrow a wheelchair at the Information Desk.
- Guided tours for people with cognitive or visual impairments are available at this museum.
- Accessible parking is available. Users must book by calling 601 3432222.
When you walk the streets of Bogotá, you involuntarily look up to observe Monserrate. Located at 3,152 meters above sea level, this formation has become a “cultural symbol”.
You should know that the hill is partially accessible. As explained on its website, the site has an accessible cable car with panoramic views and an accessible restroom for wheelchair users. To get on the cable car there is also a stair lift. However, the transfer of the funicular to the sanctuary has a climb with stairs that can be complicated even with a companion to help you.
To avoid barriers, you can simply contemplate the city from the cable car itself and from the entrance area. We recommend you write in advance to email@example.com and inform them about your situation and needs. We leave it to your discretion.
Salt Cathedral of Zipaquira
Enter the spectacular Salt Cathedral of Zipaquira. To do this, you will have to go to Zipaquirá, a city located northeast of Bogotá. You can view the different transportation options on its official website, including which stations you should take the train or bus and where you should get off.
The cathedral is located inside salt mines, from where it gets its name. Its unique architecture will fascinate you. In addition, there is an inclusive wheelchair service, adapted to its terrain, so you can visit the place without problems.
The Bogotá Public Transportation System has several pending objectives. Among them, balancing the demand for buses in all areas of the city and improving the accessibility of the fleet.
Below, we provide you with some links where you can obtain more information about the transportation options:
