The tango has made its way up from South America and you can hear it played here, as in many other parts of Central America and Mexico. The atmosphere is pleasant and adult-oriented; good for a romantic evening or a prelude to some more fun. A suggestion is to dance the tango here only if you really know how. Otherwise, you may feel quite uncomfortable amid the more experienced dancers.
