Colombian gastronomy has been influenced by Indigenous, Spanish, African, and Arab cuisine, seen in Bogotá's combination of a great variety of new tropical fruits, vegetables, all types of meats, seafood, cereals, grains, legumes, tubers, and others.

We take an early morning visit to the Paloquemao's Market, one of the largest in the country. You will have the opportunity to see, smell and taste some of Colombia's exotic fruits, including granadilla, pitaya, chirimoya, ouchuva, mangostino and avocado. Part of the visit includes samples of fresh juices made from different fruits like lulo, curuba, carrot and passion fruit.

Continue to La Puerta Falsa, a famous bakery and a traditional cafeteria in Bogotá, where you will have the opportunity try typical breakfasts like typical tamal & chocolate. Afterwards, we will visit one of the city's oldest restaurants, Las Margaritas - known for serving the traditional cuisine of Colombia and where you will have the opportunity to try a sample of Bogotá's famous dish ajiaco and empanadas. This restaurant was founded in 1902 in a traditional neighbourhood that conserves its original facade and construction. At the end of the tour, a typical dessert at a local bakery shop will be provided.
