Although I am familiar with Panama I have never been to Colombia, and I plan to spend a month in the coffee area this coming winter - with a view to retiring in Columbia. I like what CI read about Pereira but I am open minded, and actually might prefer a smaller centre as I am not in love with city life generally. However, the thought of spending a month in a small hotel room is not appealing and I wonder whether there might be better options available at a reasonable cost. I am looking for a temperate climate where I can avoid the costs of heating and A/C - and enjoy the fresh mountain air!
Suggestions are most welcome!
