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

Taxi at Bogota Airport

By taxi you can get to Bogota downtown from the airport within 30 up to 40 minutes according to traffic, since it is 15 km away from the airport.

Before riding any taxi, make sure that the driver has turned on the meter. Instead, get out of taxi and pick another one, since you can be a potential victim of a scam.

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.


Ride a taxi outside either Terminal 1 or Terminal 2 Arrivals Hall. You’ll spot the taxi ranks just in front of the airport terminals.
