The Steps - Casa de la Musica

Dance the night away - my favourite place to dance in Trinidad.

Your time in Trinidad would not be complete without at least one evening sitting on the steps outside Casa de la Musica. Every night the area beside the Cathedral in Plaza Mayor come alive with a live ‘Salsa’ band. Entrance is free, the music & atmosphere is great, the mojitos are cheap, and what’s more… you get one of the most beautiful starry skies thrown in for nothing!

 

Palenque de los Congos Reales

A great place to see Afro Cuban 'Orishas' dance, and drumming.

If you want to find a more Afro-Cuban style, head down to Pelenque de los Congos Reales, where you can usually find Afro-Cuban ‘Rumba’ and some amazing drumming sessions. They often have traditional Afro-Cuban ‘Orishas’ dance demonstrations too.

 

Casa de la Trova

Listen out for traditional ‘Trova’, (folk music from Cuban travelling storytellers), and ‘Son’, (the early basis of modern Salsa music) around Casa de la Trova.

 

Discoteca Ayala – La Cueve

One of the craziest places I’ve ever danced is the ‘Discoteca Ayala’ or ‘La Cueva’.

This unique disco is set in a huge cave with stalactites & stalagmites, and water running down the rocks! Both local Cubans and tourists dance the night away to the latest ‘Reggaeton’. In any other country you’d have to wear a hard hat and a high-vis jacket!
