After, you will taste empanadas, a savory pastry that contains a delicious meat filling that goes great with ají (a typical hot sauce). This stop for empanadas is at a traditional restaurant that has been open for more than a century and according to many, they serve the best empanadas in town.

I'm an experienced photographer and tour guide with more than 5 years working on these fields. My expertise is showing Bogotá from the point of view of a variety of subcultures. Being born and raised in Bogotá made me have an insider view into the country's society, which is reflected in my photographic work and guidance. On my tours, I like to create spontaneous interactions with the locals, tell interesting anecdotes and show the not so obvious aspects of our culture.
