The Best Hostels in Cali, Colombia for Budget Travelers
Cali is Colombia's third largest city. Founded in 1536, can be explored on foot: walk under the shade of trees along the riverbank, admire the architecture of churches and other national monuments, and visit the city's many museums. Being the salsa capital of the world, Cali is primarily a destination for salsa and party but it also offers some great days out in the nearby natural surroundings. In Cali, travelers can enjoy music festivals, learn about sugarcane farming, and take in the mountainous landscapes. The majority of hostels are located around La Sexta, the city's Zona Rosa, and historic barrio San Antonio, which is quieter, and filled with charming restaurants as well as one of the safer and prettier neighborhoods in the city.
