What to do in Bogota with kids
So you decided to visit Colombia on your next family trip, and Bogota is on your list of places to visit. Even it is considered a city for business, there are plenty of exciting things to do with kids. Find out our 4 must-do activities with kids:
1.Tailor-made Cooking Class with children
If you are a foodie and love the hands-on experiences, this is the perfect experience in Bogota with kids. In our Traditional Colombian cooking class you’ll be able to choose and cook two typical dishes or appetizers. Choose among a variety of salty or sweet options! However, we know that children are not always keen to taste new flavors. If that is the case, we are able to comply with any request. How about baking something fun like cupcake rainbows, brownies or any other dessert? Feel free to decide, we can organize a class several times per day, so we can accommodate your request. Please email us, firstname.lastname@example.org
2. Sensorial Fruits Tasting with Ice Cream
Ready to experience Bogota in a unique way? Our Sensorial Fruits tasting is the ideal activity for all the family. This activity will take place at a beautiful boutique grocery store, where the local guide will lead you on an experience where you’ll smell, taste and feel the texture of each fruit in a different way…blindfolded! Then, you’ll receive a relaxing exfoliation done with coffee and passion fruit seeds. For kids, we’ve adapted this experience in a way they will totally love. Children will be able to draw and color the fruits before watching them and by the end will rejoice with a delicious ice cream!. To find out everything about this tasting, click here.
