The tour starts at 8:30pm in "Donde Fidel", the most famous salsa bar of downtown Cartagena. The guide will narrate the history of the place. One drink is included per person. You will stay there for about 30 minutes.
You will then take a private van to "La Charanga de Joseph Black", a famous Salsa Club in El Bosque Neighborhood, out of the city center. Salsa lessons start here with two professional dancers. One drink is included per person. You will stay there for about 40 minutes.
Again you will take our private transportation and arrive in "El Koreano", a famous Salsa Club in Blas de Leso Neighborhood, further south. Salsa lessons continue with the two dance teachers.

I highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in Salsa or just wanting to get out of the city center to see a more local side of Cartagena. We had a blast with Anna and our other tour mates. We made 3 Salsa stops. The first was a quick and very fun lesson with KIKI sp? He was a great instructor and amazing dancer and kept it fun all night. Anna truly went the extra mile making it feel like a special evening. From some of the best Arepas, to delicious rum, and of course, great music and dancing, it was a memorable night. Thank you!
