Who said word of mouth no longer works??!! Not us! Thanks to all your rave reviews on TripAdvisor, your photos on Facebook, your comments to your shore excursion representatives and last month’s article on msn.com naming us one of the best shore excursions in the world, we have grown in popularity and have found a newer and bigger location to accommodate the growing numbers!
Royal Villas Resort is now the new home of Salsa and Salsa, with stunning views, an undercover seating area, a large pool with a water slide, direct access to the beach, a games room, a fully stocked bar with some of the best Pina Colada’s in town and only minutes from the main shopping district.
We had our first show there with a record number of guests and the whole thing was just spectacular!
Nearly 150 guests from Carnival Splendor joined us this Thursday, all with the energy and anticipation we needed for our first show in our new home. What a blast we had! Free-pouring Margaritas, lots of mushing, plenty of laughter and lots of smiles…couldn’t have asked for a better group of people! Families, teenagers, couples, birthday girls and boys, and even a group of 21 “singles” joined us today. We even had a couple who had been married for 34 years (awww).
Here is a panoramic of the seating area just before we got started… a beautiful new setting for our salsa class, with a
giant stone wall, agave and cactus plants, enormous ceilings with great big pillars and of course, the hustle and bustle of
our new staff, which truly made today possible.
A big thanks to all those involved in making today a great success and we look forward to making Salsa and Salsa’s new home a welcoming venue to all our guests (past, present and future!). Be sure to see more pictures on our website and Facebook page.
Side Note : We’re totally stoked that we have reached 1,000 views on
our blog!! Keep coming back and be sure to comment on the posts

We are pleased to announce that Lela’s donation made it to Nashville! For the month of May, we collected donations for victims of the Nashville Floods. We chose ‘Hands on Nashville’ as the charity that received the donation.
Our contact in Nashville was the lovely and very helpful Shannon Finnegan Scott, who as we had mentioned on the tour, works at Cannon Productions (Production Coordinator). When we chose Nashville, we didn’t know where to start…we thought of Kenny Chesney (lol) and eventually found our way to Shannon. We told her about Lela, and she was more than happy to help and be our person in Nashville 🙂
‘Hands on Nashville’ is an organization that Shannon supports and so we looked at it and they do wonderful things, so Shannon was sent the check and she arranged a meet with Brian Williams, the Executive Director at Hands On Nashville. Brian was delighted to hear about Lela and the kindness you all showed with your donations.
We thank everyone for their generosity! We raised $457USD for Nashville, so give yourselves all a big round of applause!! We have reconstructed our Lela Page, so be sure to have a quick look! Also, all Lela photos from June onwards will be posted on the Salsa and Salsa Business Listing Page, so if you haven’t added it to your ‘LIKES’ on Facebook, be sure to click on it so view the pictures and tag yourselves.
June has been a busssssssssy month for us, with Father’s Day, my trip to the WSOP in Las Vegas and the growing crowds at the Salsa Tour, we are getting more photos than ever (which we absolutely LOVE!), we have lots to share with you. Look forward to a few more blog posts this week with some guests photos and some exciting news we have that we are waiting to announce 😉
