Joyà is the name of the permantent spectacle of the Cirque du Soleil in Cancun, Mexico.
Unlike the other Cirque du Soleil productions, in this one a dinner is served with champagne. Btw the menu is not only delicious but quite amazing, for example we had a dessert called Dragon's breath that when eated, white smoke goes out from the nostrils.
This spectacle is a truly great experiencie!

We had been to Mexico more than a few times, but this was the first Beautiful location for a wedding on the beach. Playa Maroma, Riviera Maya, Mexico Home to an unbelievably incredible swimming pool. The pool meanders through the grounds of the resort giving way to islands, palm trees, a hot tub enclosed in two waterfalls, and three swim-up bars. #TroveOn
Secrets Maroma is awesome. Of course I'm going to say that cause I got married at this resort. I know another destination wedding to Mexico, but getting married or not it really is a nice place.
If you want to be spoiled for a week or two, definitely look into a stay at Secrets Maroma. The resort, spa and beaches are top notch and well worth the money on a special occasion or just cause. The Iberostar is home to an unbelievably incredible swimming pool. The pool meanders through the grounds of the resort giving way to islands, palm trees, a hot tub enclosed in two waterfalls, and three swim-up bars. The activity staff will loan you balls to play with in the water so you don't have to worry about bringing them with you. View from beachfront room on the left/north side of resort. Which palapa would you choose? Beachfront rooms. All rooms are the same except the view, unless you get the end room which has a hot tub on the balcony. We have booked it once but not really worth it as we used it only once. Which one today? #playamaroma #lifeincaribbean #cancun #rivieramaya #turquoisesea #emptybeach Riviera Maya Mexico. Iggy Wana One of the best all-inclusive resorts for foodie travelers. A highlight of the experience is the live cooking show. When this is your balcony. View from the sun beds this summer.
