Salsa in Cali

Cali mightn't have invented salsa, but this hardworking city has taken the genre to its heart and made it its own. Going out in Cali is going out to dance salsa – it’s how caleños express themselves. From the tiny barrio bars with oversized sound systems to the mega salsatecas (salsa dance clubs) of Juanchito, salsa helps to break down social barriers and unites this sprawling city. If you know how to dance, this is the place to show off your moves and, if not, there is nowhere better to learn.
