What you'll do
We will go DANCING at a "PICÓ", to the rhythm of African Champeta and classic Salsa; traditional parties held in the southern neighborhoods of Cartagena, outside the walls of the touristic area and closer to the local people. "PICÓS" are mobile parties that rotate and are organized every weekend (normally on Sundays) in a different neighborhood (venue will change depending on the date). Generally held in places such as baseball fields, bullfighting arenas, basketball courts, coliseums or any available esplanade on the neighborhood´s surroundings. You will MEET local characters, listen to their stories and learn from them the hottest dance moves of these caribbean rhythms! You will LEARN about the origins of Champeta music and what "PICÓS" are all about. We will remain at the venue for approximately 3 hours and then our transport will take us Downtown back to our initial meeting point. Initial meeting point will be Downtown, outside the CLOCK TOWER where we will take our transport (approx. 25 minute ride).

Hi! My name is Juanita, I´m an event planner, T.V & Film producer, which has allowed me to meet artists, musicians, choreographers and dancers from the local and national scene. This is how I met and became friends with renowned local Champeta singer from San Basilio de Palenque, CHARLES KING; national icon of our Afro Caribbean culture. Together; with CHARLES KING as our host and me as coordinator, we´ve fussed energies to design an explosive experience!
