2. Do the Rumba on the street
Filled with driving African rhythms and sensual Hispanic influences, Cuban rumba is a raw and primal dance form. In Cuban culture, impromptu rumba dances often break out on the street. Rather than wait around for an impromptu performance to break out, tourists are better off heading out to a regular rumba to catch a little action. The Sábado de La Rumba at the Centro Cultural El Gran Palenque, for instance, is a popular one.
