The year of 2014 saw the premier of JOYÀ at the specially built Cirque du Soleil Theater at Vidanta Riviera Maya. The 80-minute spectacle is the only resident show in Mexico to feature the stunning acrobatic displays of the world’s favorite circus troupe. The theater alone is a feat of engineering. Great care went into its construction to ensure that the natural materials and repurposed foliage would enhance the theater experience without harming the surrounding ecosystem.
The Lakes Course opened at Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta in September 2017. Designed by Chet Williams of the renowned Jack Nicklaus Design firm, the lighted, 10-hole, walking-only golf course is perfect for guests who want a shorter golfing respite among all the other activities that the resort has to offer. When the course opened on September 22nd, it joined the Nicklaus Design Course and the Norman Signature Course as the third course at Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta, which also includes the award-winning Jack Nicklaus Academy of Golf. Vidanta’s other pro-level golfing experiences include Vidanta Puerto Peñasco’s Nicklaus Design Course, which was named one of the 20 best courses in Mexico and the Caribbean byGolfweek.
