Cali is the capital of the department of Valle del Cauca, which is inhabited by a diverse population of 2.4 million people with strong indigenous roots, a large Afro component and a strong Spanish influence.
Known as the 'capital of salsa', Cali offers a wide variety of cultural activities. Its already mentioned ethnic richness brings forth a diversity of contagious musical rhythms, ranging from the currulao of the Pacific coast to salsa. These stand out not only in the street festivities, but also in the daily life of the people of Cali.
In addition to its contagious joy, Cali is surrounded by a landscape of mountains with jungle peaks bathed in fog. These natural parks offer visitors a quiet environment to rest, as well as adrenaline rush activities such as windsurfing, kitesurfing and water skiing.
