BUCARAMANGA (Cabecera) “City of the Parks” “Colombia’s Beautiful City”

(Early-2022, 1 WEEK)

Nicknames: "Ciudad de los Parques" and "La Ciudad Bonita"

Also check out Medellin, Cali, Pereira, Barranquilla, Envigado, Sabaneta, Bogota, or Cartagena.

  • No gringos! I asked some of the workers in a mall how many foreigners they see and their answer was 'a lot!' upon further questioning they see at least one foreigner per day.
  • Has the highest residential-only building in all of Colombia named "Majestic" at 163 meters.
  • Favorite cafe/coworking: ColorWorking
  • Best gym: Energym
  • Best shopping mall: Cacique (in the evenings, go up to the top floor and in one corner is a bunch of bars and restaurants, sit near the wings for a drink, easy way to meet people)
  • Climate compared to Medellin: slightly hotter, much more sun, much less rain (similar pollution level)
  • Basketball is very popular (I guess they have one soccer team which is terrible)
  • Very walkable
  • Infinity Sky Club building is one of the newer ones with a rooftop pool in a good location
  • The people from here are called "Bumangues"
  • Over 160 parks in this city!
  • There are dudes all out at night on motorcycles offering a taxi service...4k COP/$1 for a short ride.
  • Bucaramanga Most Instagrammable: Santisimo (their version of Christ the Redeemer...and way better!)
  • Puente de la Novena, a walkable bridge with lights that would be packed if this city was touristy, but instead it's calm and beautiful.
  • Parque Cerro del Santisimo, another incredible touristy activity that feels so much more unique and special because there's no crowds
