JustSalsa,com went three times to Puerto Rico in the name of Salsa.
Two times it was to attend the Congreso Bacardi de la Salsa, also known as the
Congreso Mundial de la Salsa, and the Puerto Rico Salsa Congress..
The other time was when we traveled with the ashes of the legendary Salsero
Pete "El Conde" Rodriguez.
I will link the photos of Pete as soon as I can.

Posted to this page.are links to the photographs and MPEG movies which were taken at
the Puerto Rican Salsa Congreso once known as the Congreso Bacardi de la Salsa.
These congreso events are a real mixing point for people, and dancers
from all over the world. The crew from
has been covering these events since 1999. We have seen the Congreso concept grow from a loosely organized
event into the greatest spectacle of Latin dance in the World.
The workshops, taught by professionals, "break-down" the different
dance styles into understandable steps.
