Neiva is moving ahead in terms of tourism. A key intermediary city in this part of the country, Neiva has traditionally connected conventional tourist destinations like Popayán and San Agustí n to more off-the-beaten-track places such as Caquetá and Putumayo. But major efforts are being made to make the city itself more aesthetically pleasing, which is drawing tourists.

From the shady Parque Santander in the heart of the city to the Malecón del Río Magdalena at the river’s edge, visitors here will find Neiva has increasingly more to offer. And even if the city doesn’t capture your fancy, it still makes a perfect base from which to explore the attractions in the surrounding parts of Huila, such as the Tatacoa Desert in the north and Parque Isla on the opposite side of the Magdalena. If you can, be sure to get to Neiva in June for the notoriously riotous festivals that take place here.
