Great music and a wonderful array of people made for a super night. Drinks are a little expensive but it makes up for it with the fun you will have... get involved with the lessons if you are new salsa. Enjoy!

While visiting Mexico April 2014, our local friends brought us to Mama Rumba for some TRUE Salsa Dancing. Drinks are super cheap, Fee was 100 pesos per person. Music is OFF THE CHARTS good. We had a FANTASTIC evening of drinks, salsa and overall GOOD TIME!
