Cirque du Soleil Joya


Cirque du Soleil Joya

Calle Carretera Federal Cancun Km. 48, Playa del Carmen

This family-friendly Cirque du Soleil show is located within the Vidanta Riviera Maya Resort. Joya, the first Cirque resident show in Mexico, tells the story of a girl and her grandfather on a quest to uncover the secrets of life. The granddaughter inevitably gets into some mischief and meets some interesting (and extremely talented) characters along the way. Kids and adults will be amazed at the extreme twists and turns the performers can make and the storyline is both funny and entertaining for all ages.


Joya has the added bonus of being a dinner show too. Families can add to tickets and include an hour dinner pre-show prior to the main event. The dinner experience is an added layer to the show itself and features amazing musical talent during dinner. Or if dinner is too much, how about appetizers and Champagne for the adults instead? This is another ticket option that allows guests to enjoy the live music pre-show and delicious food but on a smaller scale. Show-only tickets are also available.


Show times vary Tuesday through Saturday. The show itself is 75 minutes long but families can add on an hour-long dinner, pre-show.

Age Restrictions

Children under 3 years old are not permitted and children over 5 years old will enjoy the show most.


Valet parking is available in front of the theater at a cost.
