Plaza Botero is also a must. It is easy to get to in the Metro and during the day it seemed pretty safe. The plaza itself needs to be cleaned up. The smell of baked urine actually saddened me.

There are many many of his fabelous statues there Vibrant plaza with many vendors and people mulling around. There is also a museum at the plaza which has lots of his art. This is one of my favourites.
