Location and Ground Transportation:
Traveling to Bogotá is relatively easy as the city has only one international airport which is really close to both University premises. El Dorado International Airport is 15.5 km away from Universidad de los Andes. Transportation time may vary depending on traffic. The easiest way to get from the airport to the university’s dorm is by taxi. A taxi stand is located outside the arrival hall. The cost is around 30.000 COP (around $10 USD).
