Bucaramanga

There is not much to do here, but it may be a stopover on the long route from Bogota to the coast or Cucuta. If so, visit the Casa de Bolivar (closed on Sunday and Monday), which contains ethnographic and historic collections, and have a walk in the Jardin Botanico Eloy Valenzuela, in the suburb of Bucarica (open daily). To get there, take the Bucarica bus from Carrera 15 in the city center.
