Step by Step: How to Unwind in Bogota


There’s no better way to relax than to simply take the day off and treat yourself. Spoiling yourself has been shown to have many positive effects on your health, your appearance, and your overall well-being, so go ahead and schedule a day that’s all about you. Here’s where to go and what to do so that you can unwind in Bogota the right way.

What if everything you needed was all in one easy place? In the Santa Bárbara neighborhood, just north of Bogota, you’ll find Salón Ricardo Plata. The miraculous thing about this spot is that they have absolutely everything you need to achieve total relaxation. Take a trip to the spa or the gym, and then grab a manicure or pedicure. And, if you need some retail therapy, visit the boutique. Start the day with some cardio-intensive kickboxing, the perfect way to meet the challenge of a new day while working on some muscle toning. The classes are made to fit all styles and circumstances, so don’t hesitate to ask the highly trained instructors if you have any questions or concerns.

Without even leaving the salon, you can head over to the spa’s wet rooms, where everything is waiting and ready to help you find your inner calm and discover true relaxation. Here you can also request a personal massage to chip away at some of that stress, and if not, there’s therapeutic equipment on hand to help you obtain a perfect figure. Up next is a hydrating facial treatment that will leave your skin in great shape, which is essential if you want to fully unwind in Bogota.

Now that your body has received the proper treatment, it’s time to see what the salon can do for your hair, hands, and feet. Ricardo Plata has introduced a revolutionary technique that will transform the way your hair grows. The key to the method lies in a pair of heated scissors that cauterize the tips of your hair. As a result, you’ll never have split ends again, and your hair will grow healthier and faster.

Last on the list of treatments at Salón Ricardo Plata is a manicure and pedicure. Just as before, here you’ll find only the latest techniques being put to practice. That means that where other establishments do a fine job, here they like to raise the bar. Ever heard the term “gel nails”? Here, the nail treatment concludes with a gel-based polish. Instantly drying, the treatment lasts between 15 and 25 days and won’t break with sand, bleach, or abrasion. That’s just what your nails deserve—real solutions to withstand daily wear and tear.

Finished with your treatment, the only thing left is to do a bit of shopping, never forgetting, of course, to spoil yourself rotten. You could do worse than to wrap up your day at one of the various Fedco shops located throughout Bogota. There you’ll find the kind of products that will help you to relax and pamper yourself every day of the week. Fedco is dedicated to the things that make you feel good, which is why they only carry the best in skin care and hair care products, as well as all the latest fragrances from top designers. This shop will even provide you with something special, the fitting conclusion to your day. The exclusive makeup section at Fedco will give you a free beauty lesson with David Ramos, manager of the Colombian branch of Smashbox cosmetics. The 90-minute lesson, plus an afternoon of shopping and a morning dedicated to complete relaxation all adds up to a newer, better you.
