The majority of bars and discotecas in Colombia play what's known as “crossover” music.This simply means the DJ's mix up the popular genres of Latin music, including: salsa, merengue, vallenato, reggaeton, bachata, and cumbia.Offer the people at the table next to you shots of Aguardiente to help break the ice.When all else fails, just have fun and go with the flow.Give it time, and an hour or two later the girls may be dancing on the tables and chairs without abandon.
If you get to a club early, don't be surprised if you just see everyone sitting around.
For both men and women, jeans, t-shirts, and sneakers are fine.
Colombian women take great care in their appearance, and tend to dress up more then the men.
The best approach is to be friendly and straightforward.
The guys should ask a girl to dance, or start a casual conversation.
