Is it safe to drive from the Cali airport to Buenaventura?
Any safety suggestions?
Yes, it's possible to drive that road. It'll take 3 or 4 hours.
That said, I have to ask... why in the world are you driving to Buenaventura?...
Ongoing consulting gig
There is only one flight a day into Buenaventura
Personally, unless you're very familiar with driving in Colombia I'd suggest you take the bus. Get on an express for about $10. It'll be just as fast as a car.
I'm sure you're aware that Buenaventura has some very sketchy areas... some parts are downright dangerous, much more so than any other place I've been in Colombia. Take care.
Be sure you make suitable accommodation arrangements too.
