We booked a salsa lesson for our first day in Havana and it was well worth it! Our instructors were excellent, as well as fun and easygoing! If we were there for longer we would have gone back. It was a blast - highly recommended!

What a great experience this was! Book in prior to arrival via email. We booked 2hr lessons every morning (Monday - Friday) and it was a blast - lots of dancing, laughter and fun.
