70 Reviews
Cirque du Soleil has brought its award-winning magical theater to Mexico’s Riviera Maya with Joya, the troupe’s first resident production in Latin America. From dazzling theatrics and incredible acrobatics to otherworldly costumes and death-defying stunts, this fantastical show is truly an unforgettable experience. 

The Basics
Prepare to be wowed. Cirque du Soleil’s Joya combines outstanding performing and culinary arts to impress the audience’s five senses. The intimate, 600-seat theater’s setting is as dramatic as the show itself—whose storyline draws on the heritage, history, and culture of Mexico—and is hidden away in the Riviera Maya jungle above a giant cenote. There are ticket options to suit all budgets, from show-only seats and cozy tables to a VIP package replete with a gourmet 3-course dinner experience, preshow entertainment, Champagne, and priority seating for the main attraction..

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The show itself lasts for 70 minutes, though different ticket packages offer different experiences and durations.
  • It’s best to purchase tickets for this popular show in advance.
  • The theater is wheelchair-accessible.
  • Various seating packages are available for purchase.
  • Children under 3 years old are not permitted in the theater.

How to Get There
Teatro Cirque du Soleil is located at the Vidanta resort on the Riviera Maya, just outside Playa del Carmen and Cancun. Many ticket packages include round-trip transportation from area hotels.

When to Get There
Joya’s performance schedule varies seasonally. Generally shows are at 6pm, 8pm, and 9:15pm depending on the day of the week and the time of year. If you are having dinner before the performance, arrive at the theater about 90 minutes before show time; for non-dinner tickets, arrive 40 minutes before show time.

The Tale of Cirque du Soleil’s Joya
Inspired by the migratory journey of the monarch butterfly, Joya chronicles the adventures of its eponymous teenage protagonist and her alchemist grandfather, unraveling the mysteries of a fantastical jungle and the secrets of life along the way. The 70-minute show includes troops of mythical half-human, half-animal creatures; music and theatrics inspired by Mexico’s rich history and heritage; and unbelievable contortions, trapeze, handbalancing on canes, and other acrobatics.
