Dancing at Dora Resort

Dancing at Dora Resort

A stunning, jungle style accommodation with a pool, picturesque lounge and private cenote; what more could you want? Surrounded by lush greenery and the soothing sounds of nature, you'll dance in the serene shala pictured to the left. Need a culture fix? Tulum is just 25 minutes away and is brimming with exploration opportunities. 


No! We welcome all skill levels. Simply bring a desire to move, to learn and to have a great time while exploring a new form of dance!

While none of the events are compulsory, they are part of the experience, as well as connecting with your community for the week, and are included in the price of your Edition! We highly encourage attendance to all the week's events for these reasons. 

There are 20 rooms in the accommodation offering individual, and multiple bed options.

Simply email to request your roommate after booking. 

All you need to do is get a flight/flights (depending on where you are flying from) to the Cancun International Airport. 

Once landed in Cancun, Noma will be waiting to pick you up and take you to Dora Resort.

Public transportation near Dora consists of mostly taxis that will need to be hailed in advance if needed, due to the remoteness of the location. 

We're excited to kick off your evening with a sundowner drink! Just a heads up though, we're all about keeping it chill and responsible, and we don't support excessive drinking. Dora does not have a liquor license so if you're wanting a few more drinks, make sure to purchase some at the airport before arrival!

There are no laundry services on site, however, you are able to request the use of off-site laundry services for an additional cost. 

Costamed Tulum is the nearest hospital and it's 22 min away. There are also on call doctors who are 15 minutes away. 

Any cancellation of reservations or portions of reservations MUST be received in writing.

●  60 days or more prior to arrival = 100% refund of deposit, less 20% cancellation fee (of total trip price) + US$100 processing fee. 

●  0 - 60 days prior to arrival = No refund

●  No show = No refund

●  All shared accommodation is non transferable

Due to the above it is HIGHLY recommended that all clients purchase “trip cancellation insurance” in order to cover a possible cancellation of 60 days or less of your itinerary.
