With rhythmical salsa flowing through the very veins of the inhabitants of this captivating southern city, here in Cali the only risk is wanting to dance! Whether you are here in the capital of the department of Valle de Cauca to brush up on your dancing skills, enjoy the effervescent nightlife, visit the city’s myriad of cultural activities or as a jumping off point to the lower Pacific coastal region you will be sure to enjoy its enticing and relaxed atmosphere.
Cali is a melting pot of Colombia’s different ethnic groups and has made a name for itself as a center of music, dance, theater and sports in all of their forms. Hike up the Tres Cruces mountain on a weekend for excellent views over the city, plan an evening of bohemia in the attractive and colonial San Antonio district, head out to Juanchito for salsa in its purest form or brave the stands while watching one of the two of Cali’s big football teams battling it out on the pitch. For water sports enthusiasts there’s the Lago Calima nearby, for nature lovers the Laguna de Sonso and for the adventurous the curious railway and transport system at San Cipriano.
