Pereira, Colombia Saturday, November 20, 2010
I am planning a trip to Pereira for July but first I would like to know how secure is Pereira.
Hi Miguel,I have been to Pereira many times and I have never had any problems (I am blond and it is easy to see that I am a tourist). It is not the most beautiful city, but there's absolutely things to see and do in the city itself. As in most big cities there's some areas you probably should stay away from, but in general I would say most of the city center is safe.Are you going on vacation or to visit friends. There's lots of beautiful places close to Pereira that you may visit, like Salento, Valle de Cocora, Termales de Santa Rosa de Cabal, Termales San Vicente, Santuario de Flora y Fauna Otún-Quimbaya/Parque Ucumari, Los Nevados, coffee fincas etc. In general the whole coffee triangle area is very beautiful in my opinion.I am sure you will have a great time.Thanks,Steve
