Tango Experiences in Medellín
With historic clubs and a fiery dance scene, Medellin is one of the world’s best destinations for tango. It’s the perfect place to show off your moves on the dance floor, pay your respects to a tango legend, or head to a historic club to groove to the sounds of live tango music. Here are some ways to discover tango in Medellin.
Take a Tango Tour of Medellin
Check out Medellin tango landmarks on a guided tour of the city’s hot spots and historic tango destinations. After exploring the city, take in the steamy style of some of Medellin’s best dancers during a live performance of tango dancing and music.
Discover Medellin Nightlife
If you prefer your tango music with a side of salsa, a bar crawl is a great way to check out the scene, where many dance floors offer a mix of dancing styles. Most bar crawls include fun perks such as skip-the-line access to hot clubs, free drinks, and discounts, as well as the security of a guide and driver to take the stress out of planning a night on the town.
Celebrate the Legacy of a Tango Great
One of Argentina’s most legendary tango dancers, Carlos Gardel, died tragically in Medellin, and the tango-loving city remembers him with a monument and exhibits at Casa Gardeliana—the Medellin tango museum. Some tours combine a visit to Casa Gardeliana with a live tango show, so you can make a tango day of it.
