Cali Things to See and Do

follow us

Cali can easily keep travelers occupied for a number of days, whether it be sleeping off late nights in salsatecas or wandering the colonial streets of San Antonio. The historic center has a plethora of museums, and the northern neighborhoods of Granada and El Peñon boast upmarket restaurants and boutiques that would not be out of place in Los Angeles or Miami.

Should you find yourself downtown in the Centro of Cali, there’s a few possible reasons why you’re here. You are either lost, you are trying to find an information center or you are in need of a culture fix. If the latter is true, read on!

A good place to start is the Teatro Municipal Enrique Buenaventura (Ca. 6 and Cra. 6) that stands imposing and yellow in all its Baroque glory.

From here, head to the Museo Religioso y Colonial San Francisco (Cra. 4, 6N-117) to see over 350 pieces of priceless religious works of art held within. Your next stop should be the Museo ArqueolĂłgico La Merced (Cra. 4, 6-59) and then the short stroll over to the Museo de Oro Calima (Ca. 7A, 4-69).

Should you tire of the noise and pollution of the Centro, head toward the river and the north to the Museo de Arte Moderno La Tertulia.
