"The Biennial is a trip to discover new worlds and also to be discovered and seduced by new movements, lenguages and imaginaries to think about dancing as a way to express our emotions" says Amparo Sinisterra de Carvajar, president of the 2nd Biennial.
This is the Pacific festival, in which the most importat thing is to highlight the gastronomy, the folk music and the traditions of this region in Valle del Cauca. It is an awesome experience for the locals and of course for the visitors who want to dive into this culture.
This is one of the most important and traditional festivals in Colombia. In which the favorite attractions are the "Salsódromo", the "Cali viejo" carnival, the antique cars parade, the "Melómanos" meeting, the "Superconcierto" a really nice musical show, between other shows ans events.
This is one of the jewels of Buenaventura and Colombia, considered a really important place of natural conservation within the planet. Its biodiversity is so much that the locals do not stop to be surprised with everything that is found there. If this is so, imagine the memories that each visitor of this Park takes home. "Uramba Bahía de Málaga" is located in a big area equivalent to 47.094 hectares (or 137,34 square nautical miles) that has been declared protected by the government of Colombia.
Every year, between July and October, the majestic humpback whales come to visit this place. It is important to see it at least once in life, since it is marvelous. The best of all is that they can be seen swimming in the waters of the National Natural Park, teaching to their calves how to do it. In addition, at any time of the year, you can walk through leafy trails, experience the touch of the magical waterfalls, observe its flora and fauna, taste the unique flavor of the Pacific food and immerse yourself in its authentic beaches. All these are reasons to go repeatedly to this Colombian natural treasure.
