    What else ...

    In Cali you will find that most use taxis,uber or the bus service, MIO, to get around. Cali is Salsa and with that comes a plethora of dance clubs and historical places that spawned the caleñan style. There are also many zones close to claim (the pacific sea, Pance river, Cristo Rey, Tres cruces mountain,the coffee zone from where the coffee is exported throughout the country). It is possible that the school can give you more private hours of salsa and groups hours if the voluntary can work more to the school
