Vidanta Riviera Maya is famous for its turquoise waters and lush Mayan jungle. But there’s something else that guests just can’t stop talking about—this gorgeous destination’s spectacular entertainment. With live music performed around the resort by Cancun’s best artists, captivating Theme Nights where the traditions of the area leap to life, and the magnificent theatrical extravaganza of Cirque du Soleil JOYÀ, the resort offers nightlife as dramatic and endlessly enchanting as the daytime scenery.
Mexico is blessed with a long history and storied culture, and we’re always excited to share the best of it with our guests. Enjoy performances by local dancers and singers, music and fashion showcases from different regions in Mexico, and traditional festivals like La Kermes—a fun-filled fair with games and dancing. Sit back and have fun during Karaoke Night, or jump on stage and take the mic!
Life is better with a soundtrack, so Vidanta brings the best performers from Quintana Roo and beyond to play at Vidanta Riviera Maya. Whether you prefer a soft guitar and fine wine, or lively brass and spirited dancing, you can find your show. Enjoy these acts nightly at bars, restaurants, and event spaces across the resort. Ask your concierge for the schedule of live music during your stay.
The Holidays are better at Vidanta! We’re always eager to make your stay as special as possible for you and your family, and holidays are no exception. At Riviera Maya, we’re proud to host special events, activities, and celebrations for the following holidays:
- Cinco de Mayo
- Fourth of July

Come face to face with the best show of your life, and one of Mexico’s most popular live theater events. Cirque du Soleil JOYÀ is the entertainment giant’s first resident show in Latin America, and the company’s first exhibition ever to be paired with a dinner experience.
When JOYÀ ends, the show continues at Nektar, our chic indoor-outdoor grill and lounge located across the water from the Cirque du Soleil Theater. Dine, dance, and enjoy a special performance by beloved entertainment group Red Shoes. Outfitted in retro-style dresses, matching black wigs, and ruby footwear, this trio of female musicians lights up the night with their whimsical renditions of pop songs.
