The region of Cali and the southern part of Colombia is not a very touristy part. This is a pity because many places have a lot to offer and are attracting more and more visitors. Travelers will discover a region full of history, culture, varied landscapes, mountains, old ruins, vestiges of past civilizations, and a fantastic natural setting.

Observe a wonderful starry night in the Tatacoa desert, then, before leaving to visit the archaeological sites of Tierradentro and San Agustin, stop by Paicol, a charming and little known colonial village.

In Popayan, take advantage of the white city and its old center full of history, then plan an expedition to the Purace Park to stretch your legs and soak up the view. You can then head to Cali to enjoy the crazy nightlife and its beautiful salsa dancers.

You can also continue further south and enjoy the waterfalls, rivers, and Amazon jungle in Mocoa, the Blanco y Negro festival in Pasto, and the amazing Santuario Las Lajas church in Ipiales.
