There’s only one place at Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta where you can watch as an artist paints a portrait of the world with just sand, that thousands of years of Mexican history and tradition come to life through dance, that you’ll fall in love with the many sides—and personas—of a lovable clown, and you drink craft cocktails while listening to the hit-filled set of one of the area’s best DJs. That place is Santuario, the sweeping entertainment space seated at the center of Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta. Welcome to the life of the party, all under one thatched roof.

At 7 AM, Santuario opens and guests can greet the day with strong coffee, fresh fruit smoothies, and yummy pastries on any of the lounges or terraces that fill the space. The structure is also the first place that greets most guests during their vacation, being the gateway to the parking area and taxi pick up and drop off.
Every night, Santuario boasts a different assortment of astounding acts, from traditional dance, to jazz, to singers, to acrobatics, and live art preparation. Guests can enjoy these performances on the main lounge, or relax with a drink prepared by Santuario’s expert mixologists on any of the many side lounges or terraces. And after the acts wrap up for the night, a DJ mixes live music until close.
Acts change nightly, so see your concierge for a schedule of that evening’s performances.
