Pablo Escobar used to pick up whores enroute in Pereira for many years to entertain his coca growers.It still happens daily too business as usual.I read comments that Pereira women made said they aren't floosies.They even marched in the streets of Pereira staking their claim.I'm much older now lived in Pereira my entire life and I continue to see it all just sitting in Simon Bolivar plaza and the trucks heading to pick up finished product normally between 3am and 4am on Saturdays each week when everything is shut down.I've seen many fine whores over the years getting rides to service coca growers still do.Sit in Simon Bolivar plaza with 50 usd and you can get the mother daughter banquet no problem.

Pereira is known as one of the top 5 safest cities in Colombia, probably even top 2!
The idiot that says it's dangerous because of possible drugs cartels is talking rubbish!
don't get involved with crimes and stay away from crimes and bad areas and you'll very likely
be fine not only in many parts of Colombia but elsewhere too. and don't wear expensive things
or clothes in public unless you live somewhere very secure.

Pereira is the distribution center for several high profile drug cartels and it has been since the days of Pablo Escobar. If anyone has a death wish visit Pereira they'll make it a reality.
