Salsa in Costa Rica - A Success Story

Castro's Bar
San Jose, OT (Costa Rica) -
Editor's note: Jena sent an email asking about Salsa in Costa Rica to Quentin's Friends, an email list I subscribe to. I pointed her to my articles about Castro's Bar.
Hi QFers,

I reached out last week saying I was off to Costa Rica and would be in San Jose on Saturday night and where could I go for salsa dancing. Fellow QFer Robert Abrams gave me the scoop on where to go. It is all documented on his site www.exploredance.com

So the story goes that I was getting a cab to go off to Castro's Discotheque when the strap on my high heels broke. I had bought a new pair of heels that day in San Jose, with no intention of doing partner dancing in them - they are platform heels that are very tall. However, choosing between that or sandals I took them instead.

I got to the club and the ambiance was great - I boogied down - but no one asked me to dance. Finally I did the asking and got a partner. I must have been too tall because at one point my dance partner asked me to take off my shoes! I was a head taller than him with them on so it made sense!

Anyway, I had a hoot of a time, and was even asked to dance once at the end of the night so that was encouraging.

Castro's is definitely a place I will return to.
love to QF,
and thanks Robert,
