Must see in Cancun. True Cirque experience. This venue dials it up even more with there staff and culinary experience. Bus you there in a very nice coach bus, personal attention from the minute you arrive. The venue is a beautiful experience inside and out. Show is a journey and very well done. Sound is amazing. Worth every penny, with no pressure for additional expenses (which is rare in Mexico) beautiful evening for wife and I, as we sipped champagne while watch the show.

Celebrated my husband’s birthday, at this famous venue. I bought the champagne dinner package and was surprised when we received an upgrade to VIP. We had the best seats in the house, gourmet dining and first-class entertainment. My husband was thrilled

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 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.

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!

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.

Absolutely magical from start to finish - the food and champagne, the fantastic performances including special affects for all the senses!.....Oh, and the theatre itself is breathtaking! Only downside is the Mosquitos while you're outside - take repellant you'll need it!
