Every corner lives, breathes and feels the rhythm and flavor of salsa, it is something that is definitely appreciated when having contact with people when listening to them speak with that singsong accent full of flavor, the warmth of the people that is perceived in a way incredible that they welcome you as if you were one of them.
One of the things to highlight about the culture of Cali is its gastronomy, where we find refreshing drinks, such as chontaduro juice with plenty of "hielito", a "shampoo" or its popular "cholao", which consists of a drink - dessert with fruit and crushed ice.
Among its 4,600 square meters, there is a spectacular gastronomic opportunity to refresh its visitors in the best way, thanks to the fact that they have the most exotic fruit such as Mangosteen and the most popular drink in Cali such as sugarcane juice. Sugar.
Its architecture does not go unnoticed, the mix between the classic - colonial and modern constructions tell us about the future of the city, becoming one of the attractions that the region offers to visitors.
