Cali Travel Guide, Colombia

The city of Santiago de Cali (famous amongst the locals by the shorter version Cali) is the capital city for Valle del Cauca which.One should note that Columbia happens to be a unitary republic which is made up of 32 departments (like states in other countries).

The city of Santiago de Cali is surrounded by natural boundaries from two major sides. On the eastern side of Santiago de Cali lies the River Cauca while on the western side lies the Western Mountain Range (also famous by the name of Farallones de Cali). The other two sides are plain land which extends to the two cities of Yumbo and Jamundi. Many small rivers that emerge from Western Mountain Range pass through the metropolitan region of Santiago de Cali. All these make the city of Santiago de Cali very rich in terms of water and this adds to the beauty of Santiago de Cali.

The presence of water bodies gifts the city of Santiago de Cali with fresh breeze which helps to maintain the temperature of the city. Santiago de Cali receives around thousand mm of rainfall every year. The annual minimum temperature ranges around 19 degree Celsius while the annual maximum temperature ranges around 30 degree Celsius. As one can observe the annual average temperature is around 25 degree Celsius.

The city of Santiago de Cali boasts of lush green surroundings due to double rainy seasons. The first rainy season occurs during the months of April till May and the second occurs during the months between October and November. No other variation in temperature is observed in the city due to the proximity of the city with the equator.

The government of Santiago de Cali is working hard on Masivo Integrado de Occidente (called as MIO in short) which is being built to regulate the multiple buses and the traffic of Santiago de Cali. There will be around 9 different corridors (typically roads) under this project.

The second largest Airport of Columbia is located in the proximity of Santiago de Cali and this airport itself serves for the travelers who want to use air transport. The design of this airport is also unique in itself as it is situated between two huge mountain ranges. The airport extends from south to north and you will rarely find such an airport somewherle else.
