Donde Fidel is a classic in Cartagena. Allways full of people, locals and foreigners alike all looking for having a nice time and enjoy the music. If you like dancing salsa this is the place for you. After crossing the entrance you will feel transported to an "Old Salsa Club" and all you have to do is enjoy!

Great place with the soul! Haelathy mix of locals and tourist, cheap bear and the best salsa ever! You can dance anytime - I did at 1 pm and 1 am ;) and just enjoy your your life. Very informal, laid back and real place. Not too much dance floor in the busy weekends nights but if you can only... More

We stopped here 3 or 4 times while we were in the Old City of Cartagena since it has good, cold Colombian beer. If it was dry outside we usually took our beer there, since the place has a massive sound system that they keep cranked up fairly loud. It was close to the Plaza Aduana and the clock tower.

If you're in Cartagena, this is the place for people watching in the evening to a soundtrack of salsa and sol music. The beer is relatively cheap too.

This is mainly a bar with a very small space to dance salsa. They have a ton of music for those who are really know about the salsa music scene with history.

I didn't stay long at this location since it was loud with people coming in and out. The outside area was packed and it felt super touristy to me. If you go with friends I'm sure the experience will be different than mines. Recommend going in groups only.

A good example on how too many tourists are changing the customer orientation. since the guests are coming anyway it is less important to take care of them. Although the place is very nice, chairs and tables are dirty so you look twice where you want to sit down
