Ibagué can seem an urban chaos with the large number of buses and the noise they make, but there's an increased appreciation for those who do find their way here............
Whilst Colombia has a tourist trail with no stop in Ibague, you could make the effort to stay & visit something different? It is perfectly located for those who wish to get off the beaten path as you will only be 1 hour from this mainly undiscovered region of paradise, that is still unknown to many foreigners, it’s beauty is matched by nature, history, culture, food, and people.
