As a busy commercial center, Villavicencio has a good provision of hotels. In general, budget and midrange options can be found downtown, while smarter top-end hotels are generally located on the outskirts.


Asaderos (restaurants serving roasted or grilled meats) dish up the regional specialty mamona (baby beef), and can be found all over town.

Drinking & Nightlife

Villavicencio is a student town and so has a young and up-for-it population. There are plenty of bars in the downtown area that get busy after dark.
