Great place to stay.
Wilber's awesome, he's very inviting and open to sharing his home with guests. I highly recommend taking at least a couple salsa lessons with him since: 1. You can't go to Cali and not dance, 2. Cali has it's own style of salsa which he knows very well.
The neighborhood he lives in is beautiful. It's right next to San Antonio church which offers great views of the city, and is close to a lot of popular nightlife spots.
I was very fortunate to chose this house on Airbnb. The place is clean, tidy and the atmosphere is very cool, with salsa classes going on every day, the vibe is just awesome. Wilber and his wife Diana were extremely friendly and helpful. San Antonio is a great area, with a gorgeous park right next to the house. You have to have a picnic there at night time!
Thanks for everything!
Hi all, to keep it simple, I couldn't have wished for better place to begin my stay in Cali or in Colombia for that matter. From an intial stay of 2 weeks booked, I ended up staying a month as my hosts made sure that I felt at home in Casa Salsa. Wilber and Valerie provide a lot more than just a room and its facilities which are clean and looked after.
Wilber is a master in salsa and only a few lessons with him will guide you throughout the world of salsa caleña. Valerie will make sure that you have everything you need around the house and knows all the good trips to do in Colombia.
Living in San Antonio for a month was perfect. It's very central to all the places someone would like to see and do in Cali and the neiborghood itself is very unique in the city.
I'd recommend Casa Salsa to anyone that wished to experience and visit Cali as it really is.
Enjoy your stay!
Wilber's House is located in the best area of Cali. You can walk to the center, it's safe and directly on the parc of San Antonio. Wilber is very welcoming and hepfull. You have to take some salsa class with him, it will help you to understand Cali. Enjoy it
Wilber is a gem. He is very passionate about his work and is very good at it. He clearly loves people and likes to bring them together. This makes staying with Wilber a real joy.
I feel I have a new friend with Wilber which has made my stay very worthwhile. I only wish I could dance :) - Next time Wilber !
Wiber is a nice guy! I took private Cali style salsa class with him since I want to use it in my new dance routine. He did help me a lot. And the house is in a convenient neighborhood!

About the Host, Wilber
About me and my interests:
My life revolves around Casa Salsa!. I am graphic designer and a professional salsa dancer, member of one the best recognized salsa school from Cali and I currently work with hostels and companies as Salsa Instructor.
I'm outgoing and cheerful guy, I love going out to have fun very often so it's nice when one of my guest are able to make me company. I really enjoy seeing my guests being confident to have lots of fun practicing salsa steps at a party.
The house is in the perfect location and Wilbur is a gracious host. The accommodations are more like couchsurfing than airbnb, but I was happy to have a place to stay in Cali.
Private Room and Salsa
Good place to stay at a good price. The historic neighborhood of San Antonio is really nice as well.
I came to Cali will the intentions of staying a month and now I am going on my 5th! If your looking to see the real side of Colombia and learn the different cultures here the Cali is the city to be. Its mix of Spanish, Indigenous and African culture is both interesting and beautiful. I love it here and being in Medellin for a Month before coming here I can say I felt more in Colombia and learned alot more about this country and its culture being in Cali. Wiber, the head honcho of the Casa, is a sweetheart! he goes out of his way to make you feel at home and once you get to know him youll find him hilarious. Hes very geuine and caring to everybodys needs and questions. He also offers salsa classes as he is a proffesional salsa dancer. I am not a salsa man myself but I have watched him teach over the past 4 months and I can say hes fun but also serious and passionate about what hes doing because he wants you to learn. The house is nice and cozy. 4 bedrooms downstairs and 1 upstairs on the roof. The kitchen is perfect for cooking and preparing all your own meals has all the utensils and a 4 burner gas stove. Bathroom has hot water shower. The neighborhood is extremly unique and stands out the most of any neighborhood in Cali. San Antionio has the old Colonial style houses with the church and park right in the midst of all this. From friday to sunday the park and church is full of Colombian familys, street venders, food venders and live shows. People gather at the park to socialize and watch shows. Beautiful atmosphere and gives you a deep feel of the strong family bond in this country. Once you get settled in here the neighbors will start saying hi to you as you pass and if your friendly will spark a conversation with you. Your surrounded by super nice Colombian familys on both sides of the place so its really easy to feel comfortable here. Your also in a great location close to everything from Intercontinental Hotel and Casino, to great restaurants and night life. Everything is within walking distance or at most a 4 $ taxi ride away. Also El Centro is a 5 minute walk from San Antonio. This is the downtown of Cali full of stores, super markets, street venders you name it they have it! This place is the best deal in town and the most confortable. Grasiela is extremly nice and goes out of her way to explain and help people get here. And once your here and if she is here visiting and you need anything she is always there to do what she can. My experience here was amazing and would recommend this place to anybody traveling this way!
Have been taking salsa classes form Graciela and Wilbur now pretty much daily (just finished class #7) and can't believe the progress I have made. If you want a systematic step by step approach and serious about progressing fast in as short a possible time possible, I highly recomend you book at least 20 hours with them, you won't regret it.
