Salsa Dancing at the Nuyorican CafeSan Juan may seem small for a capital city, but there’s no need to worry if you’re a night owl, thanks to the abundant nightlife options. Many hotels have live music and dancing, and the capital has plenty of clubs. Not sure where to go? Make a beeline to a longtime favorite: the Nuyorican in Old San Juan. It’s a small, crowded dive of a spot, where drinks are served unfussily in plastic cups, but craft cocktails aren’t the draw here. The live music—and the incredible dancing—are what have locals and visitors “breaking night” at the Nuyorican. It doesn’t matter if you don’t know the moves; someone will inevitably offer you their hand. Don’t be intimidated; the fun is giving the steps a try and immersing yourself in the moment.
