Dance parties in every corner of the venue

Can you imagine dancing bachata at 4 pm in a swimming pool in the middle of the summer sun? And yes, especially in the summer season, they are social during the day in areas such as the swimming pool or outdoor areas of the enclosures.

It is a luxury to be able to dance in daylight and enjoy the good weather. In the congresses in the winter season the daytime socials are done in closed environments.
