El Chico is a beautiful part of Bogota, an exclusive area with swanky properties and lots of trees and lovely green spaces. It is smart, picturesque and alive with the vibrancy, excitement and color of a Latin City. El Chico is also generally considered to be one of the safest parts of Bogota.

For relaxation, visit one of the parks. At the heart of the area is Parque de la 93, a green oasis where children play and locals come to stroll and exercise their dogs. From here, you can soak up some wonderful views of the mountains, and occasionally you will see temporary art installations here. Surrounding the park are upmarket restaurants where some of Bogota’s best chefs thrill diners with their creations. There are also chain restaurants, bars and cafés. The area’s other parks include Parque El Chicó where there is a stone wall that has a castle-like appearance.

Go to the northern part of the park for the Museo del Chicó, an old colonial house which was once the hacienda of El Chicó, the property of a wealthy family. Today, it contains a small collection of art and objects collected by Mercedes Sierra de Perez, who was the heiress of the hacienda. There are also collections devoted to nature and the history of the park and Colombia.

Getting to Chico Park

One of Bogotá’s fancier parks, Chico Park is just alongside the ritzy Parque 93 neighbourhood. With shady, tree-lined avenues and pretty water features, it’s popular with families and couples on weekends. There’s even an actual double-decker London bus in the park that serves coffee!
