Bogota Airport Guide to El Dorado International Bogota Airport (BOG)

Taxi Bogota Airport

By taxi you can get to downtown Bogota from the airport within 30 up to 40 minutes.

Our recommendation to guarantee your safety is to order a taxi via Uber or any other taxi app or to ask to do it at your hotel since it can be more reliable than hailing or picking one in the street.


Taxis operate in gates 2, 3, 5 and 6 of Terminal 1 and in arrivals gate of Terminal 2.


The authorized taxi service at El Dorado Airport is Taxi Imperial.

Share a car

Sharing car apps are a useful way to get to your destination at a reduced cost comparing to the above options. You can consider to share your ride with more people or simply join another one’s trip. 

Apps like Uber may be useful for your trip to any of the cities nearby. In fact, in Colombia, it is considered a safe way to travel rather than taxis!


If you want to transfer to Bogota city center on your own, you can book a private transfer.
