PALMA DE MALLORCA
Diary of a salsa weekend with TravelToDance
We arrived on Saturday morning in Palma and went to visit the historic town as our hotel was in the center. At 1pm we met Isidro, who was not only our driver and iland tour guide , but also our photographer by day and our dancer by night. He took us to know the Bay of Alcudia and the Formentor Lighthouse, a very nice place in the northwest of the island, which is definitely worth visiting.
At night we went to enjoy the Sbk atmosphere of Palma, here they danced everything, Cuban salsa on line, and we have to say that they love bachata, because they alternated the songs equally, one salsa and one bachata all night, and they also play some kizomba.
On Sunday we went to see the Belver Castle, in the same city of Palma and we walked through the port. On the way to the castle we found ourselves with a swing festival on the street with live music. Quite a surprise for dance lovers like us, and also had a great atmosphere, these are the wonders of the surprise factor. The views from the castle are impressive, we liked them so much that we are already thinking about how to furnish it to move there.
We found a place to eat thanks to a man who saw us desperate going around the center of Palma, on Sundays they close everything! And he told us an incredible bar, where we almost changed the name of the agency and called it traveltoeat, because we ate a lot. And this was not all, because after our super lunch, we took the advice of the waiters, and went to taste the typical Mallorcan sweets, and there we went to have dessert to a typical cafe-bar where we tried gató, ensaimadas, coca de patata and I do not remember what else.
Another night salsa to burn the calories accumulated tasting Mallorcan cuisine.
On Monday morning we got up early to visit the Cathedral and the museum before returning to the airport to take our flight back. It was an incredible weekend, very fun and with many anecdotes to tell.
Thank you girls for trusting us to organize your trip, it has been a pleasure!
