Neighborhood and city info

Ho to get around

We are located in Conquistadores



cheap, easy to use, very safe. We use it a lot.


The best is to use an app like Cabify or Didi. It´s just a little more expensive than Uber, but still cheap. Normally it´s safe to take a taxi in the street.

Also the Uber app allows to ask for taxis specifically (rather than classic Ubers).


There are many public busses. They are really cheap and go to most places of the city. Please ask us if you need specific information.

Airport transportation


There are busses going to the International Airport (MDE) frequently. They start from two different locations: from Hotel Nutibara in the City Center and from San Diego.
So you could use Uber or taxi to one of the starting locations and take the bus from there.

Bus fee to the airport: approx. 20.000 COP


The most comfortable and convenient way to go to the airport is by taxi. It takes approx. 50 minutes and costs around 100.000 COP
If you want to go by taxi we will be happy to recommend you a trusted service that we also use ourselves.


There is a metro in the city that is very quick, clean and safe. The next Metro stop is called “Exposiciones” and is located around 20 minutes walking distance from our apartment.

Long distance busses

If you want to travel to other towns or cities there are two Bus Terminals for long distance trips. Just ask us if you need further information.
