Bogota, Colombia

Athens of South America

Colombia's heart and soul, Bogota has earned the nickname "Athens of South America" thanks to its abundance of universities, libraries, and lower-level schools.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Bogota: Centro de Memoria El Cuartico (in Valledupar), A Pata con Joaco (in Villeta) and Alto de la Virgen (in San Francisco). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Gold Museum (Museo del Oro), explore the world behind art at Museo Botero del Banco de la Republica, make a trip to Bolivar Square, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Catedral de Sal de Zipaquira.

For other places to visit, traveler tips, more things to do, and tourist information, you can read our Bogota route planner.

Birmingham, UK to Bogota is an approximately 16.5-hour combination of train and flight. The time zone changes from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) to Colombia Standard Time (COT), which is usually a -5 hour difference. In June, daily temperatures in Bogota can reach 22°C, while at night they dip to 11°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Mon) early enough to travel to Quito.

Light of America

High in the Andean foothills, Quito remains one of the world's most photogenic capital cities, featuring two dramatic mountain ranges as its backdrop.
Venture out of the city with trips to Cuicocha (in Cotacachi), Otavalo (Museo Otavalango, Mercado 24 de Mayo, &more) and Zipline (in Mindo). Spend the 13th (Tue) among the fascinating landscape of Cotopaxi National Park. There's much more to do: take an in-depth tour of Museo Templo del Sol Pintor Ortega Maila, don't miss a visit to Mitad Del Mundo, get to know the fascinating history of Quito Old Town, and admire the striking features of Fundacion Iglesia de la Compania.

For photos, maps, other places to visit, and more tourist information, go to the Quito road trip planning app.

You can fly from Bogota to Quito in 6 hours. Other options are to drive; or take a bus. Plan for a bit warmer temperatures traveling from Bogota in July, with highs in Quito at 26°C and lows at 17°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 28th (Wed) so you can travel to Lima.

Lima, Peru

City of the Kings

Founded in 1535 by Spanish explorer Francisco Pizarro, Lima represents an interesting blend of modern attractions and preserved colonial architecture, much of it clustered in the World Heritage-listed city center.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Lima: Cristo del Pacifico (in Chorrillos) and Zona Arqueologica caral (in Caral). There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at Museo Larco, let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour, walk around Circuito Magico Del Agua, and take a leisurely stroll along Miraflores Boardwalk.

To find photos, where to stay, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the Lima road trip website.

Traveling by flight from Quito to Lima takes 6 hours. Alternatively, you can drive; or take a bus. While traveling from Quito, expect slightly colder days and about the same nights in Lima, ranging from highs of 22°C to lows of 19°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Sun) so you can travel to La Paz.

La Paz, Bolivia

City that Touches the Sky

Take a moment to catch your breath as you commence your holiday in La Paz.
Change things up with a short trip to Puma Punku in Tiahuanaco (about 1h 10 min away). Spend the 11th (Wed) exploring the striking scenery along WMDR Yungas Road. There's still lots to do: push the limits with an extreme tour, see the interesting displays at Museo de Textiles Andinos Bolivianos, make a trip to Mercado de Las Brujas, and get outside with Chacaltaya.

Plan my La Paz trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

You can fly from Lima to La Paz in 5.5 hours. Alternatively, you can drive; or take a bus. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Lima to La Paz. When traveling from Lima in August, plan for little chillier days in La Paz, with highs around 18°C, while nights are much colder with lows around -3°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 21st (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
