JOYÀ Adds Entertainment to Cancun/Riviera Maya Scene
Cirque du Soleil's only resident troupe outside of Las Vegas and Orlando opened in 2014, kicking off yet another stellar attraction for visitors to Cancun and the Riviera Maya.
The colorful 70-minute performance - which has been dubbed JOYÀ - offers an immersive theatrical and culinary experience for the whole family.
The name JOYÀ, rooted in the Spanish “joya” meaning jewel or pearl, alludes to a person or event of great value.
Through this mesmerizing performance, an alchemist’s granddaughter discovers joy and wisdom by sharing an extraordinary experience in an unlikely place.
