The evening begins with a opportunity for a pre dinner drink or appetizers if you didn't order the dinner. a walk up to the main event is steep but they offer wheel chairs. There was not a bad seat in the house. Appetizers were fabulous,! Amuse bouche ( dragons breath) exciting and delicious. Salmon or beef we had the salmon the drama never stopped! Very well presented and the taste wonderful. Desert lets say was nothing short or amazing. The show had all the excitement and drama one could ask for. Well worth the price. The people next to us had just come for the second time this week.
Discovering that there is Cirque du Soleil show the Mayan Riviera was a welcome surprise. Upon arriving at the the Joya Theatre grounds, we immediately began to begin the experience of the Joya theme and journey. The journey from the entrance, through the calming and picturesque vegetated grounds, and culminating at the unique, charming jungle themed theatre helped to build the excitement and intrigue to the best Cirque experience that we have had. The culinary creations that incorporated mayan cuisine were delectable. Capping the dinner were four exquisite desserts delivered in the book of life. The ensemble of musicians and entertainers during dinner was perfect accompaniment and prelude the magnificent show JOYA. Not to diminish the magnificent Cirque productions we have experience and JOYA rates at the top. My wife and I cannot wait to return to experience this exceptional show once again.
One of the highlights of our visit to Mexico. Did not receive a confirmation, and was a bit confused about when and where to meet the bus. A bit more clarity about directions would have been helpful. Overall a very enjoyable experience, would recommend to all.
This was absolutely fabulous, The Dinner was amazing, we got to change the Champange for wine as we are not big champagne drinkers. The show was amazing, we loved every minute of it.
This was incredible. Really recommend the VIP experience. The food was amazing, presented beautifully. We were sat towards the front so had a really good view of the show. Excellent experience.
It was incredible!!!! From the facilities to the performance everything was top notch. The only thing i regret is not doing the dinner. My hat goes off to the staff they above and beyond. If you are thinking about it no need just do it.
This is an amazing experience in Cancun. Don't hesitate, Buy it!!!
If you can afford it, try the appetizer option.
Este tour es una experiencia fascinante, si le alcanza el dinero, compre la opción de aperitivos, de verda vale la pena. El servicio y el personal lo hacen creer a uno que ha llegado a otro mundo.
The show was funny and entertaining. The location and amenities were beautiful. Loved the costumes!
If you do two or three things in Cancun, you should book this show! And it is well worth the extra money to buy the VIP Champagne and Dinner options. I promise the experience will blow you away. From the moment you are greeted by name at the front gate, to the short walk with your personal host into the theatre, to the private lounge with surprise cocktails the dry ice effects are simply amazing and an incredible touch that makes you feel like you are part of the show to the stage-side seating and impeccable service, this is truly an experience you won't soon forget. Oh, and the show is quite good, too!
Fantastic show a typical Cirque performance full of fun and excitement i loved every minute of it!
Amazing show, intimate atmosphere, and delicious food. We had the champagne and dinner package which was well worth it!
Absolutely fantastic, the show, location and attention by the staff was excellent and unlike the holiday tour operators like Thomson, transportation to and from the event is included in the price. As we were located in Cancun we were picked up in a 52 seater coach from the Playa La Isla shopping complex Liverpool, which was only a 22 pesos for 2 people local bus ride from our hotel. At the event we did however meet another British couple who having booked through the their tour operator had had to pay 1,500 pesos in a taxi one way approx 60 each way. Would highly recommend anyone going to Mexico to see this show.
Unique, funny and very entertaining for all ages. We opted for the champagne and nibbles package. The food was both tasty and bizarre. You could even eat the spoons. The show was incredibly and at certain times you didn't know were to look as there was so much going on, with artists performing from every angle including left, right, above and behind you. The venue was great and the coach from Cancun was prompt and comfortable. If you like theatre l would highly recommend this trip.
From the luxury bus to the venue itself and ultimately the show. Fabulous experience. One piece of caution - We arrived at the start time because of Cancun traffic. I would recommend the pick up time to allow an extra 15 minutes even for the 9:00pm show our pick up time was 745pm - we did not leave parking lot until 8pm and arrived at the show at 8:58pm . I would have preferred not be to seated when the 'curtain went up.
