What is it like to retire in Cali?

"I've yet to see any sort of "expat community", but as my husband IS Colombian, as of now, this hasn't been a problem. As far as Cultural, Attractions, Recreation, Nightlife? Well, we have had the opportunity to travel ALL throughout Colombia, as the money conversion is amazing right now. We're even taking a 7 night cruise out of Cartagena in October... just awesome," said one retiree in living in Cali, Colombia.

"Cali is a vibrant and lively city in Colombia that is full of culture, recreation, and nightlife. The city offers a host of activities and attractions that appeal to people of all ages and interests, including retirees.
