Anyone have any advice on Bucaramanga? It isn't a very popular visited city but I will take any suggestions. Mostly looking at places around.
Last time I breezed through here on the way to Santa Marta from San Gil. Was told it was a clean nice city.
Looking advice on the cleanest neighborhood to stay in. The shady neighborhood to visit and take photos. Also looking for outskirts to try looking into visiting at as well.

Hey Erick. You may have been here, but as it's on the way to Bucaramanga from Bogota (close to Tunja) I thought I'd recommend you go anyway. :-) In Bucaramanga itself, stick to the south of the city - the north is more dodge.
