Who do Pamploneses go on Friday and Saturday nights for a bit more elegant dancing? They say to the discoteca at Pamplonaâ€™s best inn, the Hotel Carionga. Many make this part of the circuit of hitting the night clubs down near the Plazuela Almeida. Thereâ€™s no cover charge and no minimum consumption. Merengue, salsa, vallenato and reggaetĂłn (yes, even reggaetĂłn) throbs this dance hall until the morningâ€™s wee hours. Only rum and aguardiente are on hand, though if what you want isnâ€™t, the staff can scare it upâ€”or so I was assured. Open Friday and Saturday 8:00 p.m.-2 a.m.
