Ferrocarril de la Sabana

Usaquén is one of the largest districts in Bogota with nearly 1 million citizens. Usaquen is where many of the wealthiest and most affluent neighborhoods in the city are located, being the seat to huge high-end shopping malls, luxury boutiques, vast financial centers, and busines squares, multiple golf and country clubs, hundreds of fine dining restaurants from different parts of the Globe, as well as a beautiful colonial area. It is definitely recommended for all visitors to Bogotá. It is home to many sightseeing locations, modern business squares, and its own colonial center. The main square is the meeting point of the area where you can find pretty nice restaurants and bars. But walk around and find more great places to eat and drink. It serves as a hub to connect with outer destinations north from the city, which include many attractions within nearby towns.
