Cali

A “green” city

You are here

Cali’s cheerful nature is manifested in salsa, a Caribbean rhythm that is danced here among the sugarcane in its own unique way. In this city, nicknamed "Branch of Heaven,” the peaks of Cristo Rey, the hill of the Three Crosses, and the hills of San Antonio jut upwards from the plains that make up most of Valle del Cauca.   

What to do in Cali

 Cali, founded in 1536, can be explored on foot: walk under the shade of trees along the riverbank, admire the architecture of churches and other national monuments, and visit the city’s many museums. In Cali, travelers can enjoy music festivals, learn about sugarcane farming, and take in the mountainous landscapes.  

UNIQUE EXPERIENCES

Salsa dancing may seem difficult, especially when it’s performed by master pairs and dance groups that have spent years perfecting their movement, coordination, and speed. There are numerous opportunities in Cali for tourists to try their hand at this energetic dance, as there are a number of dance academies and schools offering lessons tailor-made for beginners. The city has also earned a reputation as a major destination for shopping.

CAN’T-MISS ACTIVITIES

With salsa music always playing in the background, Cali hosts a unique fair and offers a vast array of museums, colonial churches, a zoo, and sites of great environmental importance in the surrounding area.
