Elodie, Manager, New York

Honestly one of the best vacations of my life. I am so sad to leave! Thank you for my teachers. They are THE ABSOLUTE BEST!``

Max, Miami

I had the best time on my Somoloco Salsa Immersion in Medellin. The entire trip was a blast. I continue to tell friends it was an 11 out of 10. Everything from the dance instructors, to the experiences, to the city of Medellin, the tourist attractions. All of it was just perfect.

Eddie, Illinois

The program was set up very well and I was quite happy with it, it was a great intro for my first visit to Colombia. The teachers were great too and very talented, I was happy to have met them. Medellin is a beautiful city, I look forward to visiting it again.

Louise, Copywriter, London

I loved every minute of my time with Somoloco Salsa Immersion. I was welcomed into their community and we had a blast! All the teachers I met were super professional and experienced and the mix of private and group classes worked really well. Medellin is one of my favourite cities. There’s so much life. Music oozes from the shops, cars and bars. Some of my best moments were out in Medellin’s salsa spots, dancing until the early hours of the morning with new friends. We also went on a beautiful hike into the surrounding hills and went swimming in waterfalls. This experience gave me exactly what I was looking for: fun, adventure and friends. I felt like I was really living life!

Kelly, Journalist, Los Angeles

If Colombia is on your list of travel destinations, you should do your very best to come on a Somoloco Salsa Immersion. Experiences included their open mic night, a couple hikes to special locations, and of course the private salsa classes with one of their fantastic teachers who came to the apartment and taught my boyfriend and I on my roof. I’m not exaggerating when I say that all these experiences exceeded my already high expectations. I very much recommend Somoloco Salsa Immersion to anyone who wants to discover the best of Medellin alongside a diverse, talented, and just all around fun group of people.

Eric, Engineer, Oakland

I’m super independent. While I knew I could have just gone to Medellin and figured out where to go and what to do on my own, upon meeting David from Somoloco in San Francisco I was convinced to take a shot at one of there Salsa Immersions -- it was definitely the right move. It was the perfect blend of curation and freedom, with great people from around the world, super fun and professional local dance instructors/guides who (speak English!), superb private dance instruction, and special experiences that are made just for us by David and team. I went on a 1-week immersion, and felt like I did everything: daily salsa class in on-2 and cuban rumba styling (which is what I wanted to work on), daily spanish classes, nights out with my teachers and larger Somoloco community out dancing, dinners, and day trip excursions off the beaten path. I only could have had these experiences and the community by coming to Medellin on the immersion, and am glad I did!

Peter, Life Coach, New York

It was my first time salsa dancing and so happy I took classes in Colombia. We loved the experience of learning new moves from the masters during the day, and trying them out among the locals at night. I can’t think of a better way to learn! Our morning acroyoga classes were a great way to stretch out after the late nights dancing.

Shaw Yean, Investor, San Francisco

Awesome trip with salsa classes in a beautiful studio. A must do for all who want to spend time in Medellin. My friend Bernadette and I wanted to take the classes in the same space with our own instructors respectively and they coordinated this seamlessly. We shared a lot of laughter and learnings together as beginners and were confident enough to attempt dancing at the clubs at night! Thank you to our local friend for the recommendation!
