Getting Around

Cali is a confusing city, as street numbers appear to have little rhyme or reason. Use the river and the Intercontinental Hotel as major landmarks, or look up at the hills to see statue of the Cristo Rey and the monument of the Tres Cruces; these will help you gain your bearings.

Avenida Sexta, one of the main thoroughfares, is also known as Avenida 6 Norte, and may be marked as such on maps. Wherever you are going, be sure to have the address written correctly, since Avenida 4 is not the same as Avenida 4 Norte. The best way to avoid such problems is by finding out exactly which neighborhood it is in.

Buses are fairly straightforward and have their destinations plastered over the front window. For the most part, they travel on the main roads, and each journey costs $0.70. An efficient, new bus system called the MIO covers most of the city and runs in designated lanes. The flat fare is about $0.60 per trip.
