    Ibague is home a well renowned Conservatory of Music and stages several music and folklore festivals. In March there were groups from all over Colombia with lots of free events in the plazas and parks.

    City's Downtown

    by WaRPer Updated Jul 2, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There's nothing much to do here except for the nightlife!! Monday to Thursday everybody just got up very early, go to work and get back to bed around 9-10!! But Fridays and Saturdays are so wild, find some locals and follow them to a latino club.

    Or hanging around the downtown where you'll find all the historical places, government buildings and shopping street full with clothing, food and local handicraft shops. The biggest and most sophisticated shopping mall here is the "La Quinta"

Ibagué Warnings and Dangers

    Guerilla VS. police

    by WaRPer Updated Jul 2, 2006

    Have you ever been in an all-eyes-on situation? It happens here in Ibague, if they notice that you're an odd-one-out, a foreigner will be targeted....both by the criminals, pick-pockets or even the guarilla. Actually, it's not that bad though just keep a good look at your belongings, showing off your camera or other personal gadgets is not a very smart thing to do, unless you're going with a large group of people.

    If you're lucky (?) you'll see is the police carrying guns around (some even has a rifle!!) and run after a certain group of people, beating or even shooting -- for security reasons. They might ask for your passport if they suspect you for drug smuggling. But don't let this spoil your holiday, just stay out of the situation and everything should be just fine. The best is to have a couple of Colombiano friends with you, they'd know exactly what to do.

    Anyway, solo travelling is not a good option in this country -- this is final

    Ibagué is the "Music Capital", is just 4 hours from the capital of the country and has a very pleasant climate also has many climates in the same city. It is very nice to go via the Nevado del Tolima, there are many waterfalls and rivers to see and the scenery is beautiful.
    To stay, I recommend the Hotel Dann Combeima, 4 star hotels around the city center.
    They can obtain information in www.bureauconventionibague.org
