Southwest Colombia Travel Guide
Plan Your Southwest Colombia Vacation
Stroll about the colorful streets of Salento in Quindo, the coffee producing heartland. In Cali, Colombia's salsa capital blends flavors from the Pacific and the interior, and the result is a balmy city of contrasts; poverty and civil disorder are problems, but the visitor will enjoy long and late clement nights breaking in those dancing shoes. Farther south are Popayan with its restored colonial buildings and the UNESCO World Heritage site of pre-Columbian cultures in San Agustin.
