Sunday was very rainy and a lazy day, but I decided to get motivated and go explore a little.
I took a walk in the rain to La Macarena.
La Macarena is about ten minutes from La Candelaria and is a very pleasant residential neighborhood with numerous restaurants and a few art galleries.
This area has an incredible choice of restaurants ranging from Mexican, Arabic, Italian, English, Spanish, Colombian and food from other countries.
I decided to eat at La Frontera, a Mexican restaurant I have in my travel book that I remembered I had an excellent meal there my last visit a few years ago.
When walking from La Candelaria on Carrera 3 towards La Macarena things change around Calle 23
You have to walk over this bridge
These artist were working in the rain
It started to rain pretty hard as I got to La Macarena
It’s slightly hilly with great exercise when you walk in this area
Different rice dishes from around the world
Place for a few pints
There is where I ate (I love Mexican food)
Is a very nice restaurant
I went with the chicken tacos and found an edition of Revista DC with great coverage of Rock al Parque
It was a great meal and I was able to make 5 big tacos out of my plate
There are a few well-known art galleries in the area, but were closed at my time of visit
Time for a nice rainy walk home
My visit to La Macarena was great and I recommend visitors to Bogotá make at least one trip to the area for a meal to see the difference versus La Candelaria.
There is a much calmer and little more modern feeling.
With so many choices of interesting restaurants and galleries, I’ve decided to return to La Macarena for a visit real soon.
