Cali Population 2018

Santiago de Cali, or just Cali as it typically known, is located in the country of Colombia. It is the most populated city in the southwestern region of Colombia, boasting a population of over 2.3 million. This makes Cali the third most populous in the country. The total area of the city is 239 square miles, which makes the population density approximately 10,000 people per square mile.

Because Cali is landlocked, it did not initially grow as quickly as other cities in Colombia. However, beginning in the 1950s, the city began seeing significant growth which continued throughout the years until it reached its current spot as the third most populous in Colombia, falling only behind Medellin and Bogota. The city has a long history dating back to its founding during the 1500s. It is known as a center for sports, and it has one of the fastest-growing economies in Colombia. For these reasons, the population of this thriving city is only expected to continue to grow.
