Pereira, Colombia (Circunvalar)

(Late-2018, 1 MONTH)

Good day trip: Cocora Valley in Salento for the world's tallest palm trees (200 feet / 60 meters)

  • The attractiveness of the girls are on par with those of Medellin
  • There are very, very few foreigners here.
  • There’s really only one park in the city
  • Very central as you can get to Cali in 3 hours and Bogota or Medellin in 5 hours by car. The only flight is to Bogota, but it’s comparatively expensive to the $15 bus ride.
  • The biggest downside to Pereira is that it’s rainy all year round which to me means it rains 1.5in/40mm every month. It’s usually partly cloudy and rains every day around 1–4pm for about 1–2 hours.
  • It’s surprising that being in city known for its coffee, there are very few cafe’s. Every place sells coffee, but there are few true coffee shops.
  • There are many neat day trips in the area: thermals, salento with the tall palm tree’s, and many neat pueblo’s.
  • For being 25% the size of Cali (the last city I was in), Pereira is much more expensive. For example my gym costs $60($30 in Cali), laundry $13 ($5), dentist is $65 ($35), Airbnb is $29 ($21).
  • Some of the cars actually stop for pedestrians. Although only about 5%, in other cities it’s a 0.01%.

I also visited Cali, Bogota, Medellin, Guatapé, and Cartagena.
