Cali

— 5 nights

Salsa Capital of the World

Learning how to salsa may be the most popular thing to do in Cali, but this giant city in southwestern Colombia represents more than just the "Salsa Capital of the World." Home to over 2 million people, thriving Cali serves as a major commercial and industrial center in South America, boasting the fastest-growing economy in Colombia.
Cali is known for zoos & aquariums, historic sites, and museums. Your trip includes some of its best attractions: get to know the fascinating history of Iglesia de San Antonio, admire the landmark architecture of El Gato Del Rio( Gato De Tejada), pause for some serene contemplation at Iglesia San Francisco, and get outside with Cerro De Las Tres Cruces.

For photos, reviews, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Cali trip itinerary maker.

Cartagena to Cali is an approximately 3-hour flight. You can also do a combination of taxi and bus; or drive. Plan for slightly colder nights when traveling from Cartagena in January since evenings lows in Cali dip to 22°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 9th (Tue) early enough to go by car to El Cerrito.
