things to avoid late night in Cali?
Cali is a big city and one in South America so there are precautions that need to be taken but probably not more so than in similar cities of its size, especially on its continent. We spent two nights there and had no problems whatsoever. It was about the sixth week of a two month trip to Colombia which had gone without incident aside from a druggie getting a bit too close our second day in Bogota. We learned not to let anyone get that close after that.
We walked just about everywhere but heeded warnings about areas not to explore. We took cabs when it looked like the safest and smartest option. We always kept our wits about us, watched in all directions. We didn't carry a lot of money around and never flashed any of it when on the street. We do have nice cameras but tried to be careful when we pulled them out and carried them in unobtrusive bags rather than big "camera" bags. But my guess is the thing that kept us out of trouble the most is we were not out much past dark. We had dinner, and maybe one drink and back to our room we would go. We may have missed out on some late night fun but we got lots of great photos in the morning when the light was best. This might have been the case in Cali photo-wise but it still worked for when it came to not having any problems.
looking pretty but pretty stinky
The name Rio Cali conjures up something beautiful in my mind and its setting in town, running right through the scenic Centenario is stunning but you will notice something when crossing it from any bridge, and that is its smell. It seems all of the city's sewage is dumped into it in raw form, such is the stench of the mighty Rio Cali.
