Bodytech is the nicest gym with the hottest women you will see in Cali.... however I'm almost positive they only have 3 month minimum memberships and they are expensive.

While reflecting upon this post I realize it may not do you any good what so ever.... but I am posting it anyway

I might be able to snag a good price for a plane ticket.

Unlike Medellin, I never found a decent hotel in the 50.000-60.000 range in Cali for whatever reason they were all 90.000-120.000. I did find a decent spot on Airbnb and can hook you up with the contact via PM, they speak reasonable English. Cali is less developed and not as nice as Medellin, its also a bit rougher but nothing too crazy, your value as a foreigner is higher there and most guys have better luck with the girls there than in Medellin. The night life isn't as diverse and is more salsa focused than Medellin, which has a huge reggaeton scene. The salsa clubs to hit up are La Topa on Monday, Tin Tin Deo's on Thursday and basically any club that plays music on the weekend will be playing salsa.

Hit up Granada, Parque del Perro, San Antonio, Chipichape mall, all in the north and all within walking distance, (its about an hour walk to hit them all up) and also hit up Ciudad Jardin mall and Menga the late night party spot (2-5am). You can do all of that in 2-3 days, I would recommend taking a bus 3 hours to the coffee zone to switch things up (Salento, Pereira, Manizales) and chill there for 2-3 days as well, its my favourite area in the entire country.

I think this is the exact dynamic that I talked about in a previous post.

Tigre Wrote:OP says it's almost impossible for foreigners to get laid with quality girls.

That is an important distinction, because a gringo's idea of quality is different to the Colombian one.

The Colombian guy is going to focus on high family social status, whiteness and "good hair", level of education and employment.

The gringo doesn't care about most of that. He just wants the typical hot latina.

So the gringo responds to the Colombian guy: "All those gomelas come mierdas that you think are high quality - you can have them. I will chase after the sultry Pocahontas looking chick with almond eyes, a sweet attitude and long straight india hair down to her ass. The one that isn't good enough for you is perfect for me".

No, I could understand if he's talking about guys in Poblado who stay in hostels, dress like shit and try to hit on estrata 5/6 girls but anyone who has spent more than a few minutes on here searching the threads would know that's not realistic anyway.

Its already well established on here and has been said time and time again that night clubs aren't the best place to meet single women in Colombia, Roosh has been saying that since 09'. Bogota is a bit of a different story though as ONSs are more common there, its also the best place to meet richer girls who aren't into foreigners for the money. This guy sounds more like a jealous Colombian hater than someone who is trying to give honest advice.

That was my take. I felt like he was just taking a cheap shot at loser foreigners, who probably don't represent the guys on here, but maybe he can sign back on so that he can better explain himself.

It depends, it's long enough for you to get to know the city, to realize that it's very livable and quite safe, with at least two nice, clean, modern and fun barrios (Poblado, Laureles)... enough to understand that the weather - though changing and sometimes rainy - is nice, not Rio-perfect but nice... enough to see for yourself that food is good, diverse and not expensive, and that Medellin women are usually slim and quite cute (but not naive, used to having male foreigners gaming them)...

For quality hosting in Poblado, 60 USD is a normal airbnb price, yes... Contact me by PM if you want middle-quality accommodation for 25 USD per day.

Food can be very cheap, if you go to small places where locals eat, like Ejecutivo menu for as low as 8000 pesos.

But to find a high quality beautiful paisa, for more than a ONS, you'd need to live here at least one month and thus obtain and build social circle proofs... unless you're a very good salsa dancer, in this case night-game should be enough for you to score high.

I would say you should shoot for at least two weeks. The last time I went to Colombia, I went for about two weeks and early in my trip, got about the sickest I have ever been. It basically killed my first week, but my second week there was great. If you go to pretty much any city which is completely new to you, you will need at least a few days to get used to the layout of the city and how things work there.

No, it's not. I was confused about some of the things in this thread at first because I wrote it over a year ago and I've been to Cali and other cities several times since then and much has changed, but anyway, it doesn't matter what country you post about, how many pics you post up, or what stories you tell, guys are always going to complain about how hard it is. In a way, it's good, because it keeps people out -- more chicks for us. But guys expect Colombia to be like Philippines and you can just show up white and have chicks jump on your dick but that's not how things work here.

Bigbootyluvr got blanked there or really struggled, then came on here complaining about it. I've never heard of anyone else who couldn't get girls there, but then again, all guys I have heard or read about, myself included, put in serious work, but before going and after they get there.

Exactly.

I think a lot of guys, not so much experienced guys here on the forum, but guys new to Colombia or game, they have really unrealistic expectations about Colombia. It was never some white god factor destination, thats not why so many guys enjoy Colombia. Colombian men are worthy competitors. You need to be on top of your shit. The reason to go is to be rewarded with better quality for the same effort you would get less in return for elsewhere.

Compound those unrealistic expectations many guys have with the fact that Medellin and elsewhere has an ever increasing population of generally clueless, inept gringos doing you no favors, increasing housing costs etc and you have many guys coming back disappointed and wondering what all the fuss is about.

You have to go in understanding what your advantages really are, where best to apply them and in what way, and be willing to put in the effort. If your plan is only to just show up and whip out your white cock wrapped in greenbacks you're going to struggle. (except with prepagos).

Yep, this is very common. Like many men, they've been led to believe that simply being gringo is enough.

Some of them may be backpackers who are hanging out in hostels and chasing Anglo skanks, I've even met guys who are "repulsed" by all of the plastic and Colombia's shallow culture of putting a woman's looks over everything. I met this one 40 year old back packer loser in Cali and we started talking about banging chicks and he admitted that in three weeks he hadn't been able to. I told him he never will staying in a hostel then told him about my nice apartment I had rented next to a mall, how I'd meet them there for drinks then suggest we continue the date back at my place. His response was "that's basically prostitution man" Some guys just don't get it.

God damned them all, I was told we'd cruise the seas for American gold, we'd fire no guns-shed no tears, now I'm a broken man on a Halifax pier, the last of Barrett's privateers!

Funny story Scotian,,,, that backpacker can have all the unattractive, flip flop wearing, un sexy, no dance rythm girls he wants. That's if he succeeds.
His mind has been poisoned by the western mindset where it is necessary that a man pays for a woman's dinner date even though times have changed. That's not prostitution? He has no clue.
As for Cali, i haven't seen any backpacker types. Can't say the same for Medellin unfortunately.

It's similar in Thailand as well. Do longer term expats start going for the whiter/higher status Colombian girls after living there a while?

Most guys in BKK will bang tons of the stereotypical dark skin, wide nosed Isaan girls and other lower quality girls because they look good to us and we don't really know any better. They are also usually easier and more aggressive.

Though after staying long term *most* guys gravitate more towards the lighter skinned (or at least not dark) Thai girls with better educations and more money.

RE: Data Sheet: Cali, Colombia
Rio if it does happen its likely because the gringo doesn't want to deal with the inevitable drama of dating a lower class girl. I found the true upper class girls or Gomelas in Cali and Bogota to be very pleasant to hang out with, its the estrato 3/4 girls who think that have something to prove who I find the most annoying. Atlantic and I hung out with some girls in Bogota who moved from small cities and humble backgrounds then went to uni and became architects, they wouldn't shut up about their jobs, in English, it was aggravating. True rich girls have nothing to prove, neither do the poorer ones.

God damned them all, I was told we'd cruise the seas for American gold, we'd fire no guns-shed no tears, now I'm a broken man on a Halifax pier, the last of Barrett's privateers!

RE: Data Sheet: Cali, Colombia
I was in Cali for about a week, not so many "backpackers" but more people passing through for the day coming from Popayan or something. The people I met that were in Cali longer term were usually there specifically for salsa, usually taking lessons at a school.

The central area of Cali is pretty shady but the Parque El perro area seemed safe and was pretty lively on most nights.

I think the gringo dating up multiples points on the 10 scale is false. Like some other posters have already said you can't just be white and show up. Most gringos I saw in clubs were poorly dressed, not only just under dressed for a club but payless shoes style white runners, something that looks like it should be velcro instead of laces. My favourite gringo was a white guy with a shaved head, dressed like DMX in Cradle to the Grave.

What happens in Colombia is that you will max out much easier, if you are only able to bang 7's, you will still only be able to bang 7's, it's just that you won't have to work as hard. If you're an average guy thinking you will have to part pussy like Moses or thinking you're a Beatle arriving in NYC for the first time you will be disappointed.

His mind has been poisoned by the western mindset where it is necessary that a man pays for a woman's dinner date even though times have changed. That's not prostitution? He has no clue.
As for Cali, i haven't seen any backpacker types. Can't say the same for Medellin unfortunately.

You must not have spent much time in barrio San Antonio then, that's where most of the hostels are and where you'll see them. Its a completely different scene than Parque Lleras, its a quaint colonial section of the city with a nice park on a hill with a great view of the city. I go there for lunch or coffee during the day but rarely at night unless I want to go smoke dope with a chick because there isn't too much to do there, which is ok since the backpackers tend to just hang out there and keep to themselves.

The people I met that were in Cali longer term were usually there specifically for salsa, usually taking lessons at a school.

Ah yes, the Gringo salsa scene, I got into it a bit last year but kinda went about it the wrong way as I didn't go to an academy, I took private lessons from a chick at a hostel, which was fine but I didn't meet many other foreign students and later learned that they are a bit clique-ish. Basically they all go to academies during the week and then go out dancing at night, here's the spots:

Monday: La Topa Tolandra, they have a Gringo Tuesday style language exchange which is lame from 5-9 then things pick up and go on til about 1am.

Tuesday: It was at las Brisas de la Sexta but they moved it to a place in Parque del Perro, I forget the name of the place but both nights are organized by a cool Israeli guy named Avi.

Thursday: Tin Tin Deo's, this is the best night and that place is great.

Weekends: Basically anywhere but lots of people at Parque del Perro, La Sexta and Granada in the early evening before heading to the late night spots of Menga or Juanchito (don't go there alone)

Foreign salsa students are overall pretty cool but some can be a bit pretentious, they aren't nearly as annoying as backpackers and at least show respect for the locals culture by learning salsa (some are quite good) and usually speak Spanish well. I just found some of them to be a bit delusional, I've met foreigners who fall in love with Cali and the salsa scene and never want to leave, over staying their visas and spending all of their money for the love of dancing. The worst was this hot Finnish chick who was out every night of the week but was broke and I'm pretty sure ended up whoring herself out to keep the party going.

God damned them all, I was told we'd cruise the seas for American gold, we'd fire no guns-shed no tears, now I'm a broken man on a Halifax pier, the last of Barrett's privateers!

The central area of Cali is pretty shady but the Parque El perro area seemed safe and was pretty lively on most nights.

I think the gringo dating up multiples points on the 10 scale is false. Like some other posters have already said you can't just be white and show up. Most gringos I saw in clubs were poorly dressed, not only just under dressed for a club but payless shoes style white runners, something that looks like it should be velcro instead of laces. My favourite gringo was a white guy with a shaved head, dressed like DMX in Cradle to the Grave.

What happens in Colombia is that you will max out much easier, if you are only able to bang 7's, you will still only be able to bang 7's, it's just that you won't have to work as hard. If you're an average guy thinking you will have to part pussy like Moses or thinking you're a Beatle arriving in NYC for the first time you will be disappointed.

I think this goes for everywhere in the entire world.

Hopefully no one on this forum is wearing Payless shoes and thinking they will bang 10s.

The glory days when old school Colombia Gs like WEDO were tearing it up down there 15+ years ago there was to a certain extent but due to back packers and sex tourists many Colombians think gringos smell bad, dress bad and are only there to bang whores and do drugs, its all about separating yourself from those dirt bags.

If a guy brings a prostitute to a venue in Parque Lleras, it's game over. The local guys there probably bang many more prostitutes than anybody in Colombia, but 99% of them or all of them wouldn't be caught dead having them spotted with a prostitute in Lleras.

Colombians will generally bang anything, including donkeys but at least have the sense not to rub it in people's faces. I've seen the corniest looking mid-40s doofus gringos dressed like shit parading their prepagos through Lleras like they were trophies, it was embarrassing and lots of people were staring. There's plenty of whore houses to go to, or crazy ass strip clubs where you can bang them on stage in front of the crowd, the waiters will sell you blow and you can openly consume it. The backpackers who get strung out and freak out at bars or in the streets are just as retarded as the obvious sex tourists, I almost got into it one night with a guy in Bogota who was coked out of his mind and trying to pick a fight with me.
