After pickup in Playa del Carmen's hotel zone, head to Cirque du Soleil’s theater, located in the Riviera Maya tropical forest near the Grand Mayan Resort. Step inside the new venue, designed and built for JOYÀ, which is the first permanent Cirque show outside of the United States.

The various seating packages are described in the Itinerary below. If you selected seating with dinner, please note the dinner service starts an hour before the show.

Settle in for a story about Joyà, a restless teenage girl who is transported to a mysterious jungle by her alchemist grandfather. An original music score and stunning acrobatics bring the whimsical world to life as Joyà conquers challenges that her mischievous grandfather has secretly laid out for her.

After the 75-minute show ends, you'll be taken back to Playa del Carmen.
