I lived here in 2011 and it had a lot going on with little cafes and restaurants, live music and storytelling in a sort of mini amphitheater by the church. And in the windiest month of August, you can spot hoards of people flying kites in the park. Most expats who live in Cali live in or around San Antonio as it really is the most attractive part of the city. At the moment, I mostly go there to sit in the park and look out over Cali, watching the planes fly in and out of the airport or grabbing a drink at la Colina bar. I also love eating empanadas on the terrace of a restaurant called 'Sisa Atahualpa' and watching lightning storms over the city. There are a plethora of cute little restaurants dotted about the narrow streets and I recently discovered a vegetarian one called 'El Buen Alimento' which was very reasonably priced and had a very varied menu. Otherwise, there are great Colombian places that sell an almuerzo (soup, meat, rice, salad and a drink) for around $8.000 (£2) and, surprisingly, lots of Arabic places where you can find falafel and hummous!
Whether you are just passing through Cali or live nearby, San Antonio is a must!
