Salsa Lessons (Tuesdays, 9:00pm-10pm)
Our Tuesday salsa classes are absolutely free and one of the best things to do in Medellin. We have guests from other hostels and even locals that come by for our free weekly salsa lessons. Our salsa teacher is a Medellin local and has been dancing salsa professionally for a long time. Classes are filled with beginners, so don’t be afraid if this is your first time. After the class, the group usually goes to el Eslabon Prendido, a famous salsa club.
