    Traveler Tips

    Great seats - Easy purchasing - Highly recommend going through Viator in the future for shows and tours
    Plan to arrive 45 min prior to the show so you have some extra time worked in.
    a walk up to the main event is steep but they offer wheel chairs.

    Absolutely amazing show and I’ll be coming again and again !!!!!!!!!!!! So beautiful so calming and so musically powerful
    Wonderful Experience! Wonderful People!
    Katherine_O, Feb 2024
    A wonderful experience! We have seen several Cirque du Soleil shows in Las Vegas and the performance here was every bit as good, just on a smaller scale! We will definitely go again! We followed the performance with a wonderful mayan meal at Nektar, just next to the theater. Also, I was unaware that my wallet had slipped out of my purse prior to entering the theater. It had my ID, credit card, and several hundred dollars in cash! The staff was able to match up my ID with my ticket and found me at the performance. The contents of my wallet were totally intact! We are so grateful for the honesty and integrity of those who were responsible for returning my wallet to me! Such wonderful people!
    You will not regret it.

    Joya is a wonderful outing while visiting Cancun and the nearby surrounding areas. I would recommend doing the dinner and the show. The combination is what made the event special. Alone the show or the dinner would not have scored five stars, close but not quite there. But, together they merge to create a unique experience unlike any previous cirque du soleil I have attended. A must see.
    most simply, I can...

    most simply, I can summarize this experience by highlighting the amazing food, wonderful staff, beautiful venue, and spectacular show!
    Beautiful experience
    Elizabeth_B, Jan 2024
    Everything was amazing! The transportation was seamless and the drivers were accommodating to my mom’s wheelchair. The coach bus was nice and air conditioned. Upon arrival, there is an outdoor bar area to grab a drink before the show. The aesthetic was gorgeous! Such a beautiful location. We chose the food option and there was so much attention paid to detail. Everything including the menu was edible. The presentation of each course was stunning. The show was great too! This was an all around fantastic experience. Yes, the price is high, but I think it was worth it! A gorgeous visual experience!
    A wonderful evening!

    David_L, Dec 2023
    Unbelievable. Don’t pass up on dinner. It is not some reheated chicken dinner. It was delicious art. The entire event was the highlight of our trip to Mexico.

    Hope_W, Dec 2023
    My friend and I had excellent seats and enjoyed the appetizers. The acrobats were exceptional. We enjoyed every part of the show. In addition the bar before reaching the theater was excellent too
    Find the 2nd La Isla Plaza for the shuttle
    Dale_V, Dec 2023
    The shuttle was difficult to find. Thank goodness we did a trial run in the morning to find out where to go. We also were fortunate to ask a vendor where to look and he told us it was at the 2nd La Isla Plaza. Critical information which should have been provided by Viator. The show was marvelous.
    A great show. Highly recommend.
    Michael_H, Nov 2023
    A wonderful experience in VIP. World-class food, wonderful staff and a beautiful setting. The show was amazing and the dancers were fantastic. I highly recommend the VIP package but not essential to enjoy the dancers and production.
    acrobats were great. story was silly, if youve seen one Cirque show youve seen them all
    Lyndon_H, Nov 2023
    acrobatics costumes were great. friendly staff, nice facility. those are the positive items because they are making me type at least 1oo characters. not happy.
    Khrystopher_R, Nov 2023
    An amazing show. They even pulled me ip on stage. The food was great and the performance was wonderful. The live band sound so good
    Immersive Experience
    Gloria_H, Nov 2023
    I would recommend the dinner and show experience it was so worth it! My adult son and I were absolutely blown away with the dinner from having two servers waiting on us and the 3 course dinner was authentic to the Yucatán cuisine! The show had a cute storyline between a rebellious granddaughter and her aging grandfather. Very talented aerialists and aerobics made it so entertaining!
    Awesome must-do!
    Daphne_M, Nov 2023
    Everything about our experience was exceptional! The pre-dinner drinks at the lounge was a nice vibe, and beautiful atmosphere. Dinner was wonderful and the service and presentation were excellent. The show was great. A very unique experience that is well worth the money!
    There was not a bad seat...
    Wayne_F, Nov 2023
    There was not a bad seat in the place, the show was great and the food looked amazing, we didn’t choose the food option.
    Don't purchase the ticket with transportation
    RLS_D, Nov 2023
    Transportation Was very inconvenient Over again I would purchase ticket to the show only find my own transportation I Return to the drop-off point at 1:00 a.m. no taxi no bus raining
    Brilliant evening
    Joanne_M, Oct 2023
    If you’re in the area then definitely go. And probably premium with champagne and appetisers at least…. Beautiful venue to say the least, great cocktails and the show is sublime!
