Is there a lot of crime in Cali?

Live in Cali? Answer this Question

We asked people if there is a lot of crime. They answered:

"Crime... people are concerned for me in Colombia & ask me this all the time. MY ANSWER? If you keep your nose clean & KNOW where you should or should NOT be? You wouldn't have any more problem then you might have here in the states. I'm sure there are places where YOU live that you KNOW to stay away from, or NOT go there after dark. AND of course, you get into "shady" things... you'd have a problem here too," commented one expat who made the move to Cali.

What are the schools in Cali like?

Live in Cali? Answer this Question

"Be aware that the presentation of the school is excelent and the school promise a lot of things that are not true. It is a regular academic school with a nice campus," remarked another parent with kids at Colegio Bolivar in Cali.

"Your child would be in good hands at this school. No specific advice. There's not a strong Spanish as a second language program at all though, so this would have to be arranged. Most classes are in English although at the HS level there are several teachers who teach in Spanish," explained one expat living in Cali, Colombia.
