I think you are safe to play a combination of Salsa, Merengue and Bachata to get things going. Unfortunately, I cannot tell you what are the best songs of each type to play, I left that up to my DJ as he being PR (as well as myself) was more up to date with the songs to play.

By The Way – I know this song is old (at least 10 years) but it is played at every wedding or party that I have attended and everyone gets up to dance to it…

Suavemente by Elvis Crespo.

When I was in PR, reggaeton was huge. I’m not sure thats the kind of dance music you’re looking for though.

You should look into the soundtrack from Dirty Dancing Havana Nights – It has a lot of really catchy, upbeat dance songs & might appeal to a larger audience since it sounds like a lot of your guests wont be very familiar with Latin Music. (technically the movie is about cuba, but I’m pretty sure none of the music from the soundtrack is actually Cuban).

Salsa and merengue are always a good party pick. Since I’m not well-versed in neither of them (I only know of Olga Tañon and Elvis Crespo), we told our DJ to just play good salsa and merengue (along with other music styles we like that we also told him about). If you also play reggaeton, it’s best to leave it for late in the evening, for the younger people (and make sure you tell your DJ to pick *clean* reggaeton, in case there’s some older folks still around).
