Cali was not on my list of places to visit, but because I was taking an early morning flight from here I had to stay a night. I have only been to the terminal, the airport and in the area around Iguana Guesthouse.

Cali, with a population of about 2.6 million people, is the third largest city in Colombia. It is situated in a fertile valley at an elevation of 1005 metres. The average temperature is 24°C. Rio Cali is running through the city and to the south is the old centre and to the north is the new centre.
I didn’t have time for sight-seeing, but I have heard that there are a few churches and museums of interest and a very good zoo in Cali. Most tourist come here for partying though. Cali is called the “salsa capital” and there are places where you can dance all night, every day of the week.

    Very good info. The Iguana has been around for a long time and I´m not surprised your taxi wasn´t properly confirmed. Lots of very nice pages, thanks.

    It seems you had a fantastic summer holiday, I was also travelling south last summer, to the south of Africa ;-)
