Bogotá's got a new beach! For the annual Festival del Verano (Summer Festival), they've built a beach in the Plaza de Toros - where in normal years amateur bullfighters would be facing off against angry bulls about this time. A beach isn't a beach without water, of course, so the bullfighting stadium also has a small swimming pool.
Bogotá's only other beach is in Simon Bolivar Park.
