A much younger city, with a history that just goes back to the 19th Century, Pereira is the financial capital of Colombia’s Coffee Region. It is the best urban base for wildlife trips to some of the country’s best nature reserves of the Santuario Otún Quimbaya and Parque Ucumarí. Pereira also acts as an excellent gateway town to the natural, hot thermal springs located at San Vicente and Santa Rosa. When not preparing for onward travel into the woods and valleys beyond, enjoy the pulsating nightlife of Pereira, complete with trendy bars, pubs and chic clubs that play the latest Latino numbers!
