Jorge Castillo: Would you like to show off your merengue skills or learn the latest dance moves? Well, no matter what your level of Latin dance skills is...
Raúl Musibay: ...from great...
Jorge Castillo: ...to pretty good...
Glenn Lindgren: ...to non-existent...
Jorge Castillo: You'll have a great time at La Covacha.
Raúl Musibay: There are several places to dance the night away in the true Cuban Style. Some are found on South Beach. But there is no place that captures the flavor of Havana in the 50s...
Glenn Lindgren: ...before "you know who" ruined the country...
Raúl Musibay: ...than La Covacha. It's located on the edge of Miami in huge barn of a building with a thatched roof and big ceiling fans.
Jorge Castillo: They have a really big dance floor and all the best Cuban music – samba, salsa, merengue, gaitas, soca, and songo.
Glenn Lindgren: And they attract a diverse crowd. From teenagers to the geriatric set.
Jorge Castillo: Even if you don't dance, it's a great place to people watch. And listen to some great Latin music of course.
Glenn Lindgren: La Covacha completed some major renovations last year that should keep this cultural landmark swinging into the next century. Take a trip back to old Havana without leaving Miami!"
Jorge Castillo: They are bigger and better than ever.
Glenn Lindgren: They have several food vendors outside selling delicious Cuban treats and an eclectic menu inside.
Raúl Musibay: Food is good.
Jorge Castillo: The best nights to go are Friday and Saturday when you'll hear a mix of Cuban classics and the latest Latin hits. Grab a table, order some Cuban beers and food and hit the dance floor.
Glenn Lindgren: Don't forget the Happy Hour on Fridays.
Raúl Musibay: Check it out!
