Ecoparque Cerro del Santisimo

Reviewed By MinneMeet - Oulu, Finland

In Bucaramanga there are not so much to do as tourist but cerro del santisimo is one really cool thing to do. GO AFTER 17 when it's dark!! The lights are amazing!! (Especially because during the Christmas time) Even if we are not normally big fans of statues this place was impressive. They also had super cool water/light shows in every 20 minutes. If you are ever visiting Bucaramanga, do yourself favor and go there! They are open until 8pm. The price is around 20 000/person and if you want to go to top of the statue 5000 extra.

Cathedral of the Holy Family

Reviewed By Coellum - Manila, Philippines

I didn't expect the interiors to be so beautiful. Instead of dark walls like in gothic churches, Sagrada Familia is filled with light. Gaudi was inspired by nature. The pillars mimic tree trunks rising to meet the sky.
This is unique and very special architecture. It is sad to think that Gaudi died from a car accident. No one recognized him so he didn't receive immediate attention. An unfortunate ending for a great architect.

Basilica San Juan Bautista

Reviewed By lsmkw - San Francisco Peninsula

Very busy with local worshipers on Sunday morning. The service included singing pouring out onto the square. The square/park very well utilized also, filled with people, also offering balloons, snacks and various other small items for sale. The Basilica is the center of old white colonial buildings, also charming to explore.

Acualago

Reviewed By McCherry C

It's the only place in Bucaramanga with this kind of activity, you'll get to enjoy an adrenalin filled day, but it's really not apt for older people or even younger with back problems.. I find the design a bit flawed in the landings towards the pool.
Otherwise, an awesome day!

Jardin Botanico Eloy Valenzuela

Reviewed By McCherry C

One of the few places where you can really relax and enjoy a peaceful time in the city. It's fascinating to see all the species of plants and get to know more about our planet.
The downsize is that it'll be wonderful if the place could get renovated to include more wonderful things.

Universidad Industrial de Santander

Reviewed By Jacob C

I arrived in Bucaramanga on december 1st and the next day visited the industrial university of Santander also known as la UIS or la Universidad Industrial de Santander. The campus is beautiful and the faculty polite and accessible. I asked if there was a need for English professors and they had me come back and take the exam at the school of languages 48 hours later. Hopefully I can get a work visa and start in February. Regardless I would recommend a visit for travelers with subs time in Santander Colombia

Parque Caracoli

Reviewed By 50Shadez

Parque caracoli and Cacique are the best two malls in Bucaramanga. In my opinion, I like more parque caracoli because it offers better restaurants and stores. Caracoli is smaller than Cacique but I found the atmosphere to be warmer and friendlier.
The top floor is an amazing open space with a magnificent view of canaveral, a huge screen TV, vegetation, good restaurants, bars and a multiplex theater.

Panachi

Reviewed By InsoucianceAbroad1 - Washington D.C.

Located only a short distance from Bucaramanga the park is not only accessible but is accessible once there. The gondola/cable car ride is highly recommended, as well as visiting the momument to Stanander history.

Centro Comercial Canaveral

Reviewed By Huellasdeviaje - Medellin, Colombia

En esta parte del país los centros comerciales no poseen ese impacto importante para el turista y además las opiniones de los residentes del sector son pocas como para hacerse una idea de lo que representa este atractivo turístico en la región, tuve el placer de visitarlo este mes en compañía de mi familia, aunque he estado varias veces allí disfrutando de sus ofertas comerciales, de la gastronomía, bebidas e incluso del cine, fue construido hace 32 años con la idea el gran empresario Armando Puyana quien ha brindado aportes importantes en el desarrollo de la ciudad de los parques como se reconoce a Bucaramanga, hay muchas historias por contar allí porque a pesar del crecimiento de la ciudad sigue siendo uno de los principales centros comerciales, con servicios bancarios, parqueaderos para autos, motos y bicicletas, supermercado, casas de cambio de moneda, ideal para familias con niños y para adultos, tiene fácil accesos peatonales y tiene sillas para el descanso y disfrute del lugar, desde allí se observa la zona sur de la ciudad y posee una vista agradable hacia la zona verde, las montañas al costado de la meseta donde se divisa el Cristo y Ruitoque con sus actividades de aventura o parapente, un lugar ideal al cual volveremos sin duda alguna y Huellasdeviaje.com te lo recomienda.

La Casa del Libro Total

Reviewed By Ethan A - Boston, Massachusetts

My Wife and I visited la Casa de el Libro Total at the invitation of a friend in March during the "Principito" month and we were enchanted by the whole experience. We saw the art exhibit of paintings by a Bucaramanga artist, a lecture on St. Exupery, a musical performance, a play and a lecture on three different nights.
It was wonderful sitting under the stars enjoying Bucaramanga's delightful weather and the artistic accomplishments of so many fine young artists and performers from the area. Kudos also to the Navas family for their dedication to the cultural enrichment of the city and its people and for presenting a model that should be adopted by other cities around the world.
Highly recommended.
