about us.

Hola Cali is the premier guide for Cali, Colombia; showcasing the best places and experiences to help fast-track life in the city. We are a one-stop-shop for both expats and demanding travellers alike, who are looking for authentic cultural experiences in Cali.

Hola Cali was started in 2016 by travellers from diverse backgrounds who had decided to make Cali their home. After years of exploring the city, our team decided it was the perfect time to share our years of experience with other travellers interested in checking out this underrated city.

Just as Colombia has changed drastically over the past decades, Cali is also experiencing a renaissance. Although it has traditionally been known for its salsa culture, Cali is quickly transforming into a truly cosmopolitan city with vegetarian restaurants, Crossfit gyms, multi-language exchanges and live jazz sessions.
