    Hola Salseros,

    How to choose the next congress when there are so many nowadays?!
    This is the website:

    It has all the congresses, festivals and events with possibility for the dancers to leave a review!!
    Pretty much what trip advisor does for hotels :)

    It was launched this week, any feedback is appreciated!

    Nice idea! Should check it out.

    Checked it out. Lots of info, but well organized. clean site design. Fantastic idea! MacMoto could fill in half of the Congresses herself...

    Londongirl is another good resource for congress reviews. But she is busy dancing in NY for the next few months. :)

    Has the feel of tripadvisor and the look of airbnb.

    try olamalam too :)
    I like the site but for the future an option for a search engine where you can filter congresses by number of reviews, average rating, geographical area, dates, follow heavy, lead heavy etc. Maybe have a list of questions each reviewer needs to answer about each congress.

    But it is a great idea, impossible to choose which congresses to go too!

    this blog has alot of congress reviews, transferring them would give your website some meat :)
    londonsalsagirl. blogspot . com

    This website as well
    www .salsa-central. com /reviews/club-nights-and-events/

    !!! Tumbao

    transferring without permission is not a good plan (not to mention probably copyright violation, etc)

    Yes once we'll have enough reviews we'll have a TOP 10 congresses and so on :)

    I'm in touch with London Girl so no need to scrape data hehe

    Just curious, who is behind this website? Is it individual(s), commercial organisation, ...? There is no information whatsoever on the site itself. (or I couldn't find it)

    Hi SalsaGipsy!

    Yes we launched the website 10 days ago and our "about us" page is still not complete:

    Behind SalsaTravelAdvisor there are 3 Salsa freak friends. :)
    We're not a commercial organization and completely independent.

    We think is about time to give something back to Salsa and help others Salseros finding the next great Salsa congress!
