The CELTA centre in Bogota is located right in the centre of the city, known as La Candelaria, which is Bogota’s historical part. Plaza de Bolívar, Bogota’s central square, is less than 10 minutes away on foot. The museums and main sites in the centre are all within walking distance from the CELTA centre. Being blessed by such a central location, there are many hotels, restaurants and coffee shops available close to the school. What is more, the CELTA centre is housed in a 19th Century building, which, while newly refurbished, still retains its original charm. In terms of getting around, interestingly, Bogota has a bus system (TransMilenio) which emulates a metro system, keeping the city’s public transport highly organised. Ordinary buses and Taxis are another option for commuting.
