Every December 7th the streets of Pereira are covered by paper lanterns. From the most popular zone to the wealthy uptown houses, every family join together to share a nice evening decorating the city with the warm light of thousands of candles.

Carretera 13 N. 15-73, Zona Rosa (formerly "Melia Pereira"), Pereira, Colombia
Good for: Solo
This hamburger place is an informal, walk-up type place with only a few tables. Their hamburgers are big and provide a good example of how Colombians have modified traditional recipes (like hot dogs) by adding pineapple and green tomatoes.
Favorite Dish: Hamburger.
High up in the mountains it's a natural thermal hot springs. Bring a guide ( or a close family friend ). Incredible.
Pereira is at the centre of one of the most enjoyable regions in Colombia. It´s one of the safest cities, in the crossroads of the country's biggest cities and flanked by some of the most stunning landscapes you may find in the world. Everything is near the city and nights are lively and exciting.
Fondest memory: Take a sip from the Coffe Region. Spend at least 2 or 3 days to visit the surroundings.
