Club Vertigo

Dress to impress at Club Vertigo, the largest club in San José. This popular venue consistently hosts an impressive roster of DJs from around the world spinning the hottest house, electronic, and hip hop music. Dance the night away under the soaring ceilings, or chill out with a drink in the upstairs lounge.


Castro’s is a traditional Costa Rican dance club, attracting locals and foreigners alike with its mix of salsa, merengue, and cumbia. The action is spread throughout multiple rooms across three levels, with quiet corners to escape from the disco vibe of the main dance floor.

The large, open space is spread across multiple rooms and levels, with VIP tables and a balcony overlooking Paseo Colón adding to the upscale ambiance. Live music and world famous DJs will keep you dancing until the wee hours.

Mojitos Dance Club

Just outside the touristy El Pueblo is Mojitos Dance Club, specializing in Latin music and salsa dancing. Grab a bite at Mojitos Salsa Club, then head to the dancefloor for a free dance lesson on Friday evenings.
