Expoartesanías in Bogotá is not to be missed!
Updated: Jun 23, 2020
If you happen to be visiting Bogota in December, Expoartesanías is an absolute must. Give yourself half a day to explore the exhibits because there really is so much to see.
Looking for something to take back home with you? This is the best place to find it. You can find genuine, authentic handicrafts for much less than you would in souvenir stores and markets around the city. And if you think the prices are a little steep for sling bags or small woven vases, try asking the vendor how long it takes to make. Once you find out that a $25 item takes nearly a month to create, you will start to appreciate the price tags and possibly even feel guilty for trying to bargain.
After a few hours of browsing you are sure to get hungry. Don´t forget to visit the pavillion with local food items. I actually spent most of my money here. In addition to delicious craft beer and tasty regional lunch dishes you can also find a lot of typical sweets and treats to take back home.
