It is full of festive people who carry salsa in their genes and open their doors to the world to extend an invitation to enjoy its culture.

All visitors enjoy nightlife to the rhythms of orchestras and traditional groups that play the traditional music of the Department of Valle del Cauca with trumpets and drums in dance academies, discos, and dancing sites. Since 1958, at year’s end, the Cali Fair is celebrated with horseback riding parades, bullfights, concerts, and professional dance shows.

Tourists encounter a world of sensations, tastes, and aromas in the small restaurants that line the streets of the Granada sector.

The gastronomy of the Colombian Pacific delights locals and foreigners with a wide variety of desserts and typical beverages that originate in sugar cultivation, and dishes based on fish and shellfish.

Marranitas, champús, chontaduro, chuleta valluna, sancocho de gallina, aborrajados, avena, pan de yuca, and lulada are some of the names of the dishes and beverages that are part of the traditional gastronomy of Valle del Cauca.
