Located southwest of Bogota, Cali is a Colombian City known as the salsa capital of the world. It has a bustling nightlife and street parties are quite common here. There are several other noteworthy experiences to have, so take a look at my list of things to do while there.


Part of the job of a travel agent is to save clients time and money. I looked through hundreds of tours and picked out the best tours to book in various categories that are both the best in quality and price.
