Get in

There are regular buses from Cali (about an hour). Buga is also easily accessible from Buenaventura and Armenia.

From the bus station, it is walking distance to the center. There are also colectivos (1400 COP)

Get around

It is easy to get places on foot.


Buga has a nice historic central plaza with lots of shade trees, home to many iguanas. It's a nice place to eat an ice cream and people watch on hot days (every day).
