Copal Dance and Travel Experience:

Copal has created a space to share a common passion in a community venue. It combines a vacation – study setting. We wish to build connections between dance and culture. We aim to inspire and transform dancers in a positive, non-competitive environment.

Our focus is to present dancers with an opportunity to travel and connect with like-minded individuals. Our beach front accommodation can comfortably host up to 24 dancers that ensures safety and privacy.

Immerse yourself in the art of dance during your stay. Refresh your mind and body while being inspired by the turquoise waters surrounding the villa. Enjoy one of a kind tours to beautiful fresh water cenotes and other customized outings in places like trendy Tulum. Relax by the pool, paddle in the glassy waters, or kick back in the crushed powder sands. Copal Retreat Center is located in our safe gated and guarded community of Paamul near the popular areas of Tulum, Cancun, and Playa Del Carmen.

Our retreat is all inclusive. Meals are prepared by our incredible on-site chefs with a speciality menu prepared by a reputable chef via Mexico City. The meals can be prepared for any dietary restrictions.

Copal has hosted over 40 retreats and is rated number #1 retreat center in the Mayan Riviera. We are excited to open our doors this year to the dance community!
