I can't help... But bumping this back to the top. Fajarado is more of a quiet town, I don't know of any clubs. Although I will say that any pub depending on the crowd will have some kind of music and danceing happening. That's just PR. The club seen is back in San Juan. Although I've been on the second floor lobby at the El Con at the Cigar bar, now martini bar with a piano player banging the keys. Dancing and singing along.
Not much in the NE end for dancing. I was chatting with a local and they did mention a dance place in Fajardo, but I didn't get the name. Maybe someone has better info.
I live here in Fajardo and I'm still looking for those places where you can dance latin salsa and enjoy libations!
But seriously...Right now on weekends, there is live music in Las Croabas, specifically, Racar Rest. starting around 4:00 pm till about 9:00pm.
Within walking distance from your friends staying at El Con.
Music provided by half canned DJ music/ half live is mostly merengues and bachatas with a sprinkle of Salsa in between. Me, being a Salsero for life...HATE BACHATAS!!
Another place is Sharkey's, located in Barrio Quebrada Vueltas, between Fajardo and Ceiba, Fri tru Sun starting around 8:00pm till 12:00 on Sundays, using highway 3 south. But it's more of the same beats and DJs...and did I say I HATE BACHATA?
Anyway, it's what we got and its better than nothing. For some serious latin dancing, you have no better choice than to go to Isla Verde area.
BUT WAIT!...THERE IS MORE!
In route to Loiza, by way of road 187, starting from Isla Verde area, past Piñones about 1 mile,, there is this "hole-in-the-wall" , place called "El Balcon del Zumbador", which doesn't look or pretends to be fancy or stylish but for serious local salsa dancers (including me) is the place to enjoy live latin beats and great dancers!
It has the beachfront in the back for a nice stroll with the music in the background. And best of all...NO BACHATAS OR MERENGUES ALLOWED!
Hope this helps
WHEN IN PUERTO RICO, NO MATTER WHERE YOU GO...THERE YOU ARE...IN PARADISE!
ENJOY MY ISLAND!
Hey calrican, Thanks for the tip on El Balcon. The problem with Bacchata is that its basically country and doesn't have the stimulating rhythm of salsa.
thank you, all!!! I'm looking forward to visiting Fajardo and if I can find a place to dance, it will be the icing on the cake......Whatever we do, I'm sure it will be enjoyable!!!
Happy Holidays, Lita
