Santiago de Cali, more often known simply as “Cali”, is a city in southwestern Colombia. The city is the only one in Colombia to have access to the Pacific Ocean and as a result has prospered. Sugar was always the main product for Cali, but in the 20th Century the city industrialized and attracted immigrants from all over the continent. Today, Cali is the third richest city in Colombia, with several multinational corporations relocating here and public infrastructure spending increasing too. Despite improvements, Cali still suffers from crime rates that are higher than other cities in Colombia — but still nowhere near the levels which were reported during the 1980s and 90s. As mentioned though, the city has invested in public safety and Cali continues to get more and more secure for all of its inhabitants as time goes by.
