"This experience got 3 stars of 3 by Frommer's Travel Guide" Salsa music is without a doub part of the Caribbean culture and mainly in Cartagena, lovers of this genre are innumerable. Salsa music as part of our culture in Cartagena, comes from popular neighborhoods. We love listening to salsa music all the time. This experience will take you to discover some places where We ( locals) come to enjoy dancing salsa . We will visit 3 spots where we will introduce you to our local friends and if possible we may learn to dance with them. As a local, we will teach you how to move your hip and legs. We can't promise you that you will be a professional dancer at the end of the night, but you will have a fun experience that you will never forget. We will be able to experience live salsa music in one or two bars. Depending of the group I hire a professional dancer sometimes who will also make the night outstanding. By this experience you will also discover the " champeta rhythm" ( A local rhythm that comes from Africa) as well. Now, Don´t be shy and be ready to dance with locals and like locals.
