The city of Armenia is conveniently situated between some of Colombia‚Äôs largest cities. Bogot√° and Medell√≠n are just six hours away by bus; Cali and Ibagu√© are three hours away; and Pereira and Manizales are one and two hours away respectively. Getting to and away from Armenia by bus is the easiest and safest option.
The city‚Äôs secure, modern bus terminal is located on the southern edge of the city, a short five-minute taxi ride ($1.50) from Plaza Bol√≠var, the city‚Äôs center. Walking from the terminal to Plaza Bol√≠var is not advised. You can take any local bus from the terminal to the ‚ÄúCentro‚ÄĚ ($0.75), which will pass through the center on its route around the city. There is very little reason to fly here. If you do decide to fly, the Pereira airport services Armenia by airport shuttle every hour.
