Santiago Botero Echeverry (born October 27, 1972 in Medellín, Colombia) is a Colombian former professional road bicycle racer. He has been a pro from 1996 to 2010, during which time he has raced in three editions of the Tour de France and four editions of Vuelta a España (the Tour of Spain). He was best known for winning the mountains classification in the Tour de France, and the World Championship Time Trial.

He was, for the greater part of his career, a member of the Kelme team, but in 2003 joined T-Mobile Team (then named Team Telekom).

Botero currently rides for the Colombian team Indeportes Antioquia-IDEA-FLA-Lotería de Medellín.
