Experience Bogotá's transformation on a social tour in Ciudad Bolívar and Transmicable!
Visit the colorful and dazzling side of Ciudad Bolívar in Bogotá, a place once considered dangerous that now is working hard with tourism to change that perception to welcome everyone!
This is definitely one of the most brand new and original tour experiences in Bogotá that you can visit nowadays by Transmicable (cable car)!
We will go to the Paraíso neighborhood in Ciudad Bolívar, an area of the city that is working hard to be the new scene for local inclusive social tourism. We will start at Portal Tunal to live the “Transmicable Experience”, a mobility solution for the habitants of the area and a new opportunity to discover a magical artistic and colorful territory constructed by local talent.
As a social tour we involved local guys who believe in tourism as a tool of transformation. The local guide, the break dancer, the mom who prepares the snacks, the local artist who does the souvenirs, are part of the community that along this beautiful process have learnt about how to share the valuable things they are and have among a hostile panorama surrounded by social and economical conflicts.
We have developed a walking tour in three areas of Paraíso: “el mirador”, an amazing viewpoint of Bogotá from the south-west side; “Parque Illimani”, a real social infrastructure with parks and soccer fields, and “La Serpiente”, a colorful 120 steps stair to appreciate the size of Ciudad Bolívar, plus the “huerta”, a vegetable garden promoted by local families.
Let’s explore a new local district of Bogotá that shares street art, music, nature and talent in one real and unique experience done by local people. ¡Vamos a Ciudad Bolívar!
