About Cali

Bring your dancing shoes to Cali! A popular city near the coast, Cali is renowned for its salsa dancing and there are plenty of places to show off your moves down in the suburb of Juanchito. The city also boasts some beautiful architecture. Furthermore Cali is the centre of sports for Columbia and hosted the 2013 World Games, so it’s no wonder there are some great golf courses around! Go to enjoy the city life, explore the surrounding mountains and deserts or just to indulge in some of their famous coffee! We’ve selected the best places to stay in Cali to take it all in!

The temperature is relatively stable year round and hovers around hot! Aim to avoid April, October and November for the best chance of missing the rain.

What not to miss:

  • Museo Aereo Fenix - Visit the only aviation museum in Colombia. Over 27 full sized aircraft are exhibited here, and there are some trains thrown in too!

  • Cristo Rey - Visit the monument to admire the architecture or just the view! Also a good chance to feel a cool breeze but bring your mosquito repellent as they can be bad.

  • Gato de Tejada - A lovely peaceful park in the city littered with cat themed art works! Cat obsession not required.

  • Pance River - What better way to cool off than in this beautiful river. You can ride a bike down the bank or just hunker down in one of the restaurants, either way, a great way to spend a day!

And for the best places to stay in Cali, we recommend:

For luxury

  • Escape the city center in Acqua Santa Lofts Hotel. Located just south of Cali, the lodges have contemporary designs and each includes a small garden. Either use this hotel as a base to explore the city or just make use of the onsite salt water pool and spa!

For city chic

  • If you want a comfortable stay only a short way from the city’s main attractions, try Casa del Alferez. The contemporary hotel is chic, artistic and renowned for its fine-dining restaurant.
