The Sims Freeplay- Hobbies: Salsa Dancing



Once you complete the A Dance to Remember Quest the time limit for the salsa dancing hobby will start straight away, to begin this hobby you need to buy the jukebox from the promotions r us store for S5,000 and place it in one of your sims houses:


I cannot place the jukebox, it says its locked/ limited item, what do I do? You will have this problem if you try and place it from the new items tab, look in your inventory instead to be able to place the jukebox in one of your sims houses.

If you complete this hobby in the 7 day time limit you will unlock the Latin villa from the quest:

You will need two sims to complete this hobby at one time, the first sim selects wait for partner and the second sim selects one of the hobby options:

  • Quick Salsa- 1 hour 30 minutes
  • Extended Mambo- 7 hours 30 minutes

NOTE: you can only buy one jukebox the first time you complete this quest and 4 sims can use a jukebox at one time (2 couples) after the first time as many sims as you want can complete this hobby as you can buy as many jukeboxes as you want

After the time has passed come back and click the exclamation mark above your sims head to find one of the salsa dancing collectibles. Every time your sims complete one of the options above their salsa dancing hobby skill level up percentage will increase (it increases for both sims), once they reach 100% they will level up, there are 6 levels. You need to reach level 6 to be able to unlock all of the salsa dancing collectibles, once unlocked you will be able to find them.

The table below shows the level up percentage for each option:

This may change in future updates

 LEVEL 1 hour 30 minutes 7 hours 30 minutes
1-2 48% 188%
2-3 36% 141%
3-4 24% 94%
4-5 12% 47%
5-6 9% 37%

NOTE: it says 188% but you will start from 0% at level 2


NOTE: only the first sims completing this hobby needs to get to level 6 to unlock all the collectibles, future sims will be able to find any collectible even if they are only on level 1 in this hobby (and they can do the shortest option to try and find the collectibles quicker!)

You won’t find a new collectible each time, you will get repeats, if this happens just keep going, you will find them eventually! If it is still taking too long you can use the lucky spin on the row where you cannot find the item, this will cost LPs, when you click on the LP button it will clear the row and give you a random collectible on that row so you aren’t guaranteed a new item (you will get back any other collectibles you already had in that row) Need to earn some LPs to use the lucky spin?


The completed salsa dancing collection is shown below, once you complete the collection you need to click ‘start a new collection’ at the top of the hobby collection screen, this clears the board so you can complete the collection again to earn more rewards (you will only get the option to restart the hobby collection when you have completed the collection):

You will earn XPs when you complete a row in the hobby but to complete the collection you need to find all 12 of the collectibles

If you complete this hobby in the time limit you will unlock the Latin Villa, the first one is free after that on a s standard it costs 125SPs and on a premium it costs 175SPs. More information on the villa can be found in my house guide part five

You also unlock:

The latin paving for patios, balconies and pools


Latin Mosaic, Latin Concrete and Latin Shapes flooring 

Latin Exterior Stucco Tile (exterior walls)


Latin Red Stucco, Latin Blue Stucco and Latin Tile Mosaic walls 


The rewards for completing this collection are the breakdancing hobby and 5 LPs:

  • The first time you complete this collection you unlock the breakdancing hobby (even if you don’t manage to complete in the time limit) this is another time limited hobby, you need to buy the breakdancing boom box from promotions r us to begin the hobby:


  • From the second time onwards each time you complete the collection you will earn 5LPs
