If it wasn’t hot enough in Tamarindo already, we’ve selected the best places to show off some foot work, Latino style. Pacifico Stop by on a Tuesday night for a live local band and an opportunity to practice your bachata, meringue and salsa. The dance floor is open to all levels so it’s a really great place to see beginners learn a move or two from an experienced dancer. Tidal Dance If you’re serious about improving your steps before you hit the night club, try Tidal Dance a few minutes out of town, for some evening dance lessons. Argentinian born Belen teaches the Thursday salsa session and is truly inspirational! Mandala This new sky-high bar sits several floors up in Plaza Tamarindo, benefiting from stunning sunset views and a cool breeze through the large open windows. Saturday nights are when things hot up on the dance floor with free salsa lessons before the dancefloor opens up to the public for a night of music, dancing and an opportunity to practice your moves. The cocktails here are killer too, all freshly prepared, we recommend the Moscow Mule. Crazy Monkeys One of the more livelier clubs in town, Crazy Monkeys hosts a live salsa band on Friday nights which is always a guaranteed way to get the weekend started!
