When is the best time to fly to Cali?
Due to the tropical hot environment of the city, people enjoy dry seasons all year with temperature sitting in the mid-20s, making it the perfect destination to welcome visitors to enjoy its vast array of nightclubs and restaurants, and cultural activities all year long.
December through March is the first part of the dry season before the rain. January, February and March, in particular, are the best months to book a flight to Cali. These are the peak festivity months of the year, too. The festivities begin straight after Christmas with Cali’s most important cultural event of the year. The Cali Fair is a celebration of the regions culture and identity through showcasing salsa, horse riding parades and dance parties. The main attraction of the fair is the Salsa marathon which displays thousands of dancers harmonising to a spectacular orchestra.
April through June are the rainy months and people who don’t mind the rain can find cheap flights to Cali. July through August are dry but humid, though music festivals tend to draw visitors.
Although the city is well known as the Colombia’s sports capital, visitors take flights to Cali for much more than just its sports stadiums. Well-preserved historical centres of Cali seize the attention of visitors. In the city centre, Plaza De Caicedo is the focus of tourist activities, while monuments scattered throughout the city tell the tale of Cali’s past. The third most populous city in Colombia has become a tourist heaven thanks to its historical sites, natural beauty and multiple 24-hour entertainment venues.
Of course, Cali isn’t all about historic places. It has much more to offer visitors. People from Cali have created a symphony of fun and peace enriched with Spanish, African and South American culture. As the evening wears on, visitors experience a pleasant surprise in the atmosphere around the city. The sound of music and glittering lights create a new dawn of salsa. Tourists and locals join the floor together and dance until dawn. The great metropolis of Cali hasn’t lost the air of a small town even with its abundance of skyscraper glass towers and concrete buildings. This is a city that has embraced its future without losing the symbols of its rich past.
