What's going on in this advertising?

I got given this taxi receipt today. It's a strange image:



It's a bit hard to see but the woman's hands are blurred as if they are moving. Is she dancing? Flouncing off because she's angry about something? In a trance? Her leg position makes it look as if she's not walking or running, yet she's moving.

Also, why are there two different URLs on the ad?

And finally when they say "SEE OUR CULTURE", what were they thinking I was going to understand from this? All I seem to have learnt is that in Puerto Rico there are thin women in evening dress moving through attractive tiled interiors.

The receipt mentions "salsa" (as in dancing I presume). Perhaps that is what she was doing in the photo?
