We’ll have a Welcome Milonga on Thursday night 1/25 at the Honolulu Club and a Farewell Milonga on the following Monday 1/29 at the Honolulu Club. These are pay-at-the-door optional events not included in the Tango Marathon pricing.

Attendance will be capped at 160 persons, gender-balanced. Single follower tickets have sold out, but couples and single leaders tickets are still available.

For accommodations, we recommend finding deals using Trivago

Hotels….my first personal choice is the Ambassador Hotel on the edge of Waikiki. Reasonably priced nightly rates start at $95/night

Another choice but more pricey is the Ala Moana Hotel, conveniently located next to the Ala Moana Shopping Center. Good nightly rates are available through Trivago or Bedfinder.

That being said, I highly recommend AirBnB Oahu
Excellent rates, no hidden costs or resort fees. Rates start at $50/night. Many units are actually condos in Waikiki, and a few local houses or apartments.

The venue address is:
Aloha DanceSport Center
350 Ward Avenue
Honolulu, Hawaii 96814

For transportation we recommend your Uber or Lyft. In Honolulu, we seem to prefer Uber.

Also check out the trolley:
Waikiki Trolley 4-Day unlimited all lines passes for only $54! Scenic, Shopping, Historic tours…
